SWEEP picture

SWEEP is a program that provides financial assistance to growers to implement irrigation systems that reduce their on-farm water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. CDFA awards up to $200,000 to qualifying projects.

Since 2014, CDFA has selected 1,130 projects to be awarded, funding a total of $123 million. In each application cycle, 25% of the funds are reserved for historically disadvantaged farmers and ranchers and low-income communities.

Contact UC Cooperative Extension specialists for free technical assistance with the application or implementation of your SWEEP project.
