Program Descriptions


This program provides the fiscal and policy oversight of the federal grants awarded that promote California agriculture, and for all CDFA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Program activities which are designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture.

In addition, this program serves as the central point of contact for logistical coordination of all departmental resources, provides industry and agency coordination on environmental issues affecting agriculture, and provides centralized communications to California's agricultural industry, including County Agricultural Commissioners and the statewide fairgrounds.

This program also partially reimburses County Agricultural Commissioners' Offices for carrying out agricultural programs authorized by the Food and Agricultural Code under the supervision of CDFA.
