Our partners at the Connecticut Resource Conservation and Development Area, Inc. (CT RC&D) are pleased to announce the application period is now OPEN for their Climate Smart Agriculture Grant opportunity. Applications will be accepted until October 31, 2023. This program is funded in part by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture’s Climate Smart Agriculture & Forestry Grant established by the Community Investment Act (C.G.S. Sec. 22-26k).

Eligible farms in business for one year or more are invited to apply for funding up to $50,000 for the implementation of energy projects (on-farm energy efficiency and renewable energy) and/or soil health equipment and practices.

CT RC&D will be hosting a live webinar on Thursday, 9/7 at 7pm to discuss the application process and answer questions. Those interested in attending can register here: http://tinyurl.com/climatesmartwebinar . A recording of the webinar will be available on the website for those who cannot attend it live.
