Irrigation Efficiency Upgrades
CCWAMMP can cover up to 60% of the cost of on-farm improvements that reduce water use and increase water-use efficiency. Example projects include filter replacements, purchase of soil moisture systems, and conversions of overhead sprinklers with microsprinklers. All projects will be considered so submit an interest survey NOW!
Nutrient & Pesticide Management MeasuresCCWAMMP can cover up to 90% of the cost of on-farm improvements to prevent soil erosion and reduce nutrient and pesticides in surface water. Example projects include sediment basins, cover crops, grass filter strips, and many others. All projects will be considered so submit an interest survey NOW!
Agricultural operations within the program focus area are eligible. Farms in the lower Calleguas Creek Watershed south of Highway 101 and east of Rose Avenue will be prioritized. Farms outside of the focus area will be considered if runoff to surface water can be demonstrated.
Submit your interest survey NOW or you will miss out! Applications must be received by December 18, 2020 to allow time for consideration and approval before the grant ends January 31, 2021. As of August 2020, there's still money left to fund improvements!

The CCWAMMP project focus area is the lower portion of the CCW which includes farmland South of Highway 101 and East of Rose Avenue. Farmland outside of this area will be considered on a case-by-case basis with priority going to farms with significant nutrient or sediment MM needs.
The purpose of CCWAMMP is to provide technical and financial assistance to farms that implement agricultural management measures (MMs) that improve nutrient and pesticide management and on-farm irrigation efficiency in the Calleguas Creek Watershed (CCW).
