Register for Technical Assistance Webinar
SGC, in collaboration with the California Department of Conservation, is now accepting pre-proposals for funding Round 6 of the Sustainable Agricultural Lands Conservation Program (SALC). All prospective applicants for Land Acquisition grants must submit pre-proposals by May 29, 2020. Planning grant seekers are encouraged, but not required, to submit pre-proposals as well. The Department of Conservation is hosting a webinar to provide technical assistance to prospective SALC applicants on Thursday, May 7 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. The webinar will cover multiple topics, including eligible project types, eligible applicants, funding requirements, selection criteria, and application requirements. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 6. SALC Planning Grants support the development of policies and economic development strategies to protect agricultural lands; Land Acquisition Grants (for either conservation easements or fee acquisitions) permanently protect lands that are at risk of conversion to sprawl development. The final deadline to apply for both types of SALC grants is August 28, 2020.
