New York Ag Connection - 03/29/2023

New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Commissioner Richard A. Ball announced two grant opportunities totaling $28.5 million for projects intended to help New York’s farmers reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate water and soil quality concerns, and increase on-farm resiliency to climate change.

Ball said, “Our farmers are at the forefront of meaningful, sustainable efforts to preserve our natural resources and combat the effects of climate change.

These grant opportunities will go a long way toward helping New York’s farmers continue to implement best practices and smart environmental management planning. An investment in our environment is an investment in our agricultural industry, and this funding will help ensure farms can remain competitive, profitable, and sustainable.

Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos said, “Historically, farmers have pioneered conservation in response to environmental challenges, and New York’s farmers are now advancing solutions to the existential challenge of our changing climate and impacts that range from drought, flooding and extreme heat and cold, to the migration of invasive pests. The grant opportunities announced today will support projects that address the climate challenge and advance sustainable practices to improve the health and resiliency of New York’s farms, ecosystems and communities.”
