Provides funding to cleanup and prevent illegal dumping on 'farm and/or ranch' property, as defined in California Code of Regulations (CCR), Section 17991(d). Usually three application cycles are available each fiscal year; this is the third cycle. CalRecycle offers this Program pursuant to Section 48100 of the Public Resources Code (PRC).
Project sites shall be located on 'farm and ranch' property (both private and public land are eligible), where the owner is not responsible for the illegal disposal. 'Farm and ranch' property is defined in the Eligible Geographies section below.
Grantees have approximately two years to complete the project(s). Sites shall be fully remediated (cleaned up) with grant funds, or a combination of grant funds and in-kind funds/services. Funding includes reimbursement for Administrative, Recycling/Disposal (tires), Equipment, Material, and Personnel costs. Abatement/prevention measures shall be addressed if needed, such as site security and public education/outreach efforts. Innovation is encouraged.
See the Notice of Funds Available FY21-22 webpage for additional information and requirements (specifically, refer to the Application Guidelines and Instructions and Procedures and Requirements resource documents).
Sites that have been previously remediated, homeless encampments, and illegal cannabis grows may also be eligible.
Since this is the third/last cycle of FY21-22, the pilot program is an option allowing for less documentation to be submitted upfront (essentially only requiring an estimate of expenses/sites). The remaining documentation will need to be provided later.
The application usually entails the follow items for each project/site: Budget, Land Use/Zoning Designation, photos, Property Affidavit, a Site Characterization, map, Work Plan, and Resolution. The Resolution is conducted through the applicant's governing body (more info available).
Multiple projects/sites may be included in one application.
- Public Agency
- Tribal Government
· Resource Conservations Districts
· Federally recognized Native American Tribes [as defined in PRC Section 48100(d)(1)]
Sites must be located on 'Farm and Ranch' property, defined in CCR Section 17991(d) as range or agricultural land used for activities such as, but not limited to, commercial livestock/crop production (various). The site need not have active sales or production, but shall be appropriately zoned/otherwise authorized for agricultural activities. Appurtenant easements or right-of-ways such as, but not limited to, public roads and utilities included.
Matching Funding Requirement:
Sites requiring more than the CalRecycle maximum contribution are still eligible but contingent upon the commitment of other resources such as alternative funds, in-kind services, and/or volunteer work to complete remediation. Projects that are most cost effective, maximize their available funds, and/or have additional funds available may be given preference.
