The SALC Program supports the permanent protection of California's farm and range lands. The SALCP will complement investments made in urban areas with the purchase of agricultural conservation easements, development of agricultural land strategy plans, and other mechanisms that result in GHG reductions and a more resilient agricultural sector.
Funding offered by California's Strategic Growth Council and Dept of Conservation.
Pre-proposal summaries for Agricultural Land Conservation Easement grants are due February 6, 2015. Applications for Agricultural Land Strategy grants are due March 20, 2015.
