The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is accepting proposals for the 2021 Specialty Crop Multi-State Program (SCMP), a federal grant opportunity offered by USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service.

The SCMP will competitively award funds to projects that enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops by funding collaborative, multi-state projections that address regional or national-level specialty crop issues. These issues can include food safety, plant pests and disease, research, crop-specific projects addressing common issues and marketing and promotion.

Specialty crops include fruits and vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, horticulture and nursery crops, including floriculture. Grant awards will range from $250,000-$1 million per project; projects may last for up to three years.

Additional information is available at the CDFA SCMP website.
