California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is offering its next round of State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) funding, with the next application period opening on October 21. SWEEP provides financial grants to implement irrigation system improvements that reduce greenhouse gases, and save water on California agricultural operations. Eligible system components can include soil moisture monitoring, drip systems, pump retrofits, variable frequency drives, installation of renewable energy, and other items that save energy and reduce water use.

Sonoma RCD is planning to offer workshops to introduce the program and application process on October 30 at our office from 5 - 6:30 pm. In partnership with the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA) the RCD will also host a webinar on November 20 from . Sonoma RCD will also be available to answer questions about the program, discuss your potential projects, and in some cases assist with quantifications and filling out applications.
