Grants to California local units of government for preservation initiatives. Applicants are required to submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support the development and implementation of plans to protect agricultural lands that are at risk of conversion to non-agricultural uses.
Planning grants provide funds to develop and implement plans for the protection of agricultural land at risk of conversion to non-agricultural uses, maintaining the economic viability of the region’s agricultural lands, and developing the economic viability of regional food systems and infrastructure to support the production, aggregation, processing and distribution of agricultural products. This component of SALC incentivizes local and regional governments to work closely with local stakeholders to develop local and regional land use policies and implementation activities that integrate agricultural land conservation in a way that reduces or avoids greenhouse gas emissions, supports job creation, and benefits priority populations.
Planning grants assist the development of innovative, consensus-based plans that establish comprehensive goals, policies and objectives such as:
Plans may address unique regional threats to agricultural land and regional food systems, such as groundwater availability, catastrophic wildfire, agricultural economic viability and infrastructure for production, processing and distribution of agricultural products, how rural and urban areas interface with each other, how land use policies impact each region, and how co-benefits (e.g., habitat, groundwater recharge) can be enhanced.
Work plans should include:
SALC encourages grantees and stakeholders to include impacted Native American tribes in developing and implementing Planning projects.
