USDA Announces Partnership Winners

In September, US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced 70 selected projects will receive a total of $2.8 billion in funding as part of USDA’s Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities initiative. The investment will finance farming, ranching, and forest projects to implement climate-smart production practices on a voluntary basis on working lands. Funding, along with technical support assistance, empowers farmers to strengthen their operations resilience to climate-related disaster events while leveraging their land’s potential to sequester and store carbon. Climate-smart agriculture is believed to significantly reduce emissions, sequester carbon, and deliver lasting solutions to solve the climate crisis. Through these funding opportunities, USDA hopes to drive climate-smart innovation and expand markets for American producers. Launched in February, this opportunity was made possible through the Farm Bill. Read more HERE.
