Location California
Registration Required No

CALIFORNIA USDA-NRCS and the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD) are offering a first-of-its kind community outreach fund program.

  • Submit applications to CARCD at
  • Applications available at CARCD.ORG
  • Application concurrence by your local NRCS office required
  • 2nd Round Applications Due: April 2, 2018
  • Fund requests available up to $2,000
  • One grant per organization

The vision is to create more resource conservation by reaching out and involving historically underserved producers at the field level. CARCD is administering the program that is open to RCDs and other non-profits interested in working towards these objectives in conjunction with their local NRCS field office.

Quality projects are sought that will result in tangible, documented outcomes. However, given the small size of these grants, it is intended that they will provide a modest infusion of resources to support a broader outreach strategy.

Funds are available to support educational activities, materials, workshops, field days, seminars, tours, demonstrations, brochures, fact sheets and other opportunities to expand conservation awareness and participation to all.

Application Deadline is April 2, 2018 and must be submitted to Kristen Murphy at
