SWEEP picture

SWEEP grants encourage producers to reduce both their water consumption and their greenhouse gas emissions. Successful applications   must increase water efficiency and demonstrate the impact that the project will have on emissions. CDFA will award funds up to $100,000 but encourages applicants to find matching funds.

How to Apply

The grant process includes a web-based application consisting of a series of questions that can be saved and returned to before submitting: https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/oefi/sweep/

It is helpful to obtain quotes for projects and schedule a pump efficiency test before starting the application, as you will need them to complete the application.
