CDFA accepting proposals for 2020 CalAgPlate grant program


Program provides an estimated $250,000 in grant funding to promote agricultural education each year

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is now accepting proposals for the 2020 California Agriculture Special Interest License Plate (CalAgPlate) grant program.

Each year, this program provides an estimated $250,000 in grant funding to promote agricultural education and leadership activities for students at the K-12, post-secondary, and adult education levels. Proceeds generated through the sales of specialized, agriculture-themed license plates through the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) have made this opportunity available.

Funding is available on a competitive basis for eligible agricultural education programs as well as government agencies and non-profit organizations that administer agricultural education programs. Proposals must be submitted electronically by Thursday, October 22, 2020, at 5 pm PST.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the program website, for full details or contact CDFA ’s Office of Grants Administration at (916) 657-3231 for additional information.

The CalAgPlate program has funded more than $1.4 million in youth educational activities since the program’s inception.

You can help support agricultural education and the CalAgPlate program by purchasing a special interest license plate at your local DMV office or online today.
