NY invests in climate-smart farming
New York Ag Connection - 11/30/2023

New York Governor Kathy Hochul has announced a $16 million initiative to help farms adapt to climate change. The Climate Resilient Farming Grant Program will fund projects aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 64,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.

This project is part of the Climate Act, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 85% from 1990 levels by 2050. The fund can be used by farms to implement Best Management Practices which will help them to reduce their greenhouse gas missions, create energy savings, or enhance farm soil.

“New York’s agricultural industry is too often faced with severe challenges associated with our changing climate, from flooding to droughts that impact their crops and their livelihood,” Governor Hochul said. “The Climate Resilient Farming Grant Program is addressing these challenges head on, helping our farmers to implement projects that prevent weather-related damage and also ensure our farmers are part of the solution to climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing their environmental footprint.
