USDA Climate-Smart Commodities Funding Opportunity Deadlines Approaching

The deadline for partners to apply for the first round of funding through the new Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities is Friday, May 6, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. 

This funding pool includes large-scale proposals from $5 million to $100 million that emphasize the greenhouse gas benefits of climate-smart commodity production, and include direct, meaningful benefits to a representative cross-section of production agriculture, including small and/or historically underserved producers. 

“Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity. These pilot projects will create and expand market opportunities for U.S. agricultural and forestry products that use climate-smart practices,” said Under Secretary for Farm Production and Conservation Robert Bonnie. 

“We want a broad array of agriculture and forestry producers and landowners to see themselves in this effort.” 

Applicants with proposals from $250,000 to $4,999,999 have until 11:59 Eastern Time on Friday, June 10, 2022, to apply for the second funding pool. 

These innovative pilot projects should place an emphasis on the enrollment of small and/or underserved producers, and/or monitoring, reporting and verification activities developed at minority-serving institutions.
