The CDFA is now accepting applications for the State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program! 

The State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) provides financial assistance in the form of grants to implement irrigation systems that reduce greenhouse gases and save water on California agricultural operations. Eligible system components include (among others) soil moisture monitoring, drip systems, switching to low pressure irrigation systems, pump retrofits, variable frequency drives and installation of renewable energy to reduce on-farm water use and energy.

Visit the California Department of Food and Agriculture Office of Environmental Farming & Innovation website for more information.


If you are interested in applying we are here to provide FREE technical assistance to help navigate the application process and assistance with the required documentation to successfully apply to SWEEP. 


If you would like more information on the SWEEP application process, and how the RCD can help, check out our workshop powerpoint presentation here or contact Amy Smart, US-LT RCD Conservation Manager at
