California’s Technical Assistance Providers for Climate Smart Agriculture

There is a network of Resource Conservation Districts (RCDs), University of California’s Cooperative Extension (UCCE) staff and non-profit organizations around the state that provide technical assistance (TA) on some or all of the state’s Climate Smart Agriculture Programs – the Healthy Soils Program, Alternative Manure Management Program and State Water Efficiency & Enhancement Program.


Many received funding during the first round of grants to TA providers awarded by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) in November 2019 under a new program created following the passage of a CalCAN-sponsored bill (AB2377).
