Farm and Ranch Solid Waste Cleanup and Abatement
The Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery administers the Farm and Ranch Solid Waste Cleanup and Abatement Grant Program, which provides up to $1 million annually in grants for the cleanup of illegal solid waste sites on farm or ranch property.
California cities, counties, resource conservation districts and Native American tribes are eligible. Private property owners that desire grant funding to clean up their property will need to coordinate with an eligible applicant for funding.
A site may be eligible for funding if the parcel(s) is(are) zoned for agricultural use, where unauthorized solid waste disposal has occurred, and where the site(s) is(are) in need of cleanup in order to abate a nuisance or public health and safety threat and/or a threat to the environment. Sites are not eligible for funding if the site is located on property where the owner or local agency is responsible for the illegal disposal of solid waste.
The grants are limited to $50,000 per cleanup or abatement project, with a limit of $200,000 per fiscal year for each eligible applicant.
