Grants to California government and tribal agencies, IHEs, consultants, businesses, groups, and nonprofit organizations for projects to mitigate risks to human health and the environment. Applicants must submit a concept paper prior to submitting a full application. Projects must involve a team of stakeholders from a variety of groups. Funding is intended for projects that primarily benefit the people of California.

DPR’s Pest Management Alliance Grants Program provides funding for projects that increase the implementation and adoption of proven and effective integrated pest management (IPM) practices that reduce pesticide risks to human health and the environment. An Alliance Team of individuals representing state, local, public, private, educational, and other stakeholders is a required component of these projects.

IPM focuses on managing pests through a combination of techniques that might include habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and reduced risk pesticide use. Projects must be guided by a collaborative team of knowledgeable participants known as the Alliance Team in reducing the risks associated with pesticide use to benefit the people of California.

The Alliance Team should include active participants from a variety of stakeholder groups. For example, team members might represent state or local governmental agencies, commodity or grower groups, or community groups. Team members could also include academic or private researchers, school district representatives, or any other person interested in being an active participant in the project.
