DPR's Pest Management Alliance Grants Program provides funding for projects that promote the implementation and adoption of effective integrated pest management (IPM) in an agricultural, urban, or wildlands setting.
The Department of Pesticide Regulation’s (DPR's) Alliance Grants Program provides funding for projects that increase the implementation and adoption of proven and effective integrated pest management (IPM) practices that reduce pesticide impacts on public health and the environment. An Alliance Team of members representing state, local, public, private, educational, and other stakeholders is a required component of these projects. DPR’s Alliance Grant Program funds diverse projects in varied settings; a list of current and past projects can be found here.
The Pest Management Alliance Grants Program has a two-step application process. In Step 1, applicants will complete and submit a Concept Application that will be reviewed by DPR staff to determine if the applicant meets all eligibility requirements (as defined in the Solicitation). In Step 2, eligible applicants will be invited to complete and submit a Proposal Application that will be reviewed by DPR staff and the Pest Management Advisory Committee (PMAC). PMAC’s role, as specified in law and regulation, is to review the grant proposals for adoptability and merit and provide recommendations to DPR’s Director. PMAC reviewers are from diverse affiliations, including academic and public foundations, agricultural production, environmental and public interest organizations, and registrants and trade associations; a list of PMAC members can be found here.
DPR expects to fund grants annually, with budgets ranging from $50,000 to $400,000. Eligible grantees include nonprofits agencies, tribal governments, individuals, businesses, and public agencies, including those from outside of California; however, project work must primarily benefit the people of California. There is no limit on the number of applications that can be submitted, including multiple applications from the same person or entity. PMAC members may apply, but they must recuse themselves from discussion of any grant they submit. All applicants and associated project personnel must meet DPR’s eligibility requirements (including having no standing fines or penalties from DPR or any local County Agricultural Commissioner).
