CDFA’s State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP)has just received $40 million for drought relief (AB 128, Chapter 21). Getting your share of the money at times can seem tedious and time-consuming. Our team on Wednesday will show you how to make this process manageable. 
In this webinar, you will learn about financial assistance in the form of grants from the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s (CDFA) State Water Efficiency & Enhancement Program (SWEEP). 

Significant grants are available for implementing irrigation systems that reduce greenhouse gases and save water on California agricultural operations. 

Some of the components you will hear about include soil moisture monitoring, drip systems, switching to low-pressure irrigation systems, pump retrofits, and variable frequency drives to reduce on-farm water use and energy consumption. 
The application submission period is from October 1 – December 31, 2021, so don’t miss out on this informative webinar and your chance of a SWEEP grant.
