WORKSHOP: Planning Grants for Agricultural Conservation
June 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
SCAG is pleased to partner with the California Department of Conservation for our next workshop on June 26. The Department of Conservation has recently announced new grants for local and regional planning through its Working Lands and Riparian Corridors Program, funded by Proposition 68. This funding supports the integration of natural and working lands, specifically agricultural lands, into local and regional plans such as climate action plans, sustainable communities strategies, general plans, or specific plans. Funding can also be used to adopt TerraCount, which is a scenario planning tool developed by the Department of Conservation and the Nature Conservancy for use by cities, counties, districts and other land use planners and decision-makers to evaluate the greenhouse gas impacts of land-use plans. Department of Conservation staff will discuss the grant program, introduce TerraCount and provide technical assistance on the application process. Applications for planning project grants are due July 31.
