CDFA Announces Workshops to Assist Dairy Digester Research and Development Program Applications

Two public stakeholder workshops are scheduled in January 2020 to assist applicants interested in the Dairy Digester Research and Development Program (DDRDP). The aim of these workshops is to provide more information about the program, and to provide assistance during the application process. 

“It is important that we ensure dairy digester program applicants get the feedback they need to be competitive in the grant application process,” said CDFA Secretary Karen Ross. “We hope potential applicants take advantage of these timely workshops, whether in person or via webinar.

CDFA was appropriated $34 million dollars from the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Fund, authorized by the Budget Act of 2019, to provide financial assistance for dairy and livestock operations that install dairy digesters to capture methane.

The public workshops are scheduled as follows:

The DDRDP is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment—particularly in disadvantaged communities. The Cap-and-Trade program also creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution. California Climate Investments projects include affordable housing, renewable energy, public transportation, zero-emission vehicles, environmental restoration, more sustainable agriculture, recycling and much more. At least 35 percent of these investments are located within and benefiting residents of disadvantaged communities, low-income communities and low-income households across California.
