Support for Sustainable Farms and Field Funding
May 14, 2021
PCC signed on to Carbon Washington and Audubon Washington’s letter to Secretary Vilsack advocating for Washington State’s Sustainable Farms and Fields to be funded as a USDA pilot project.
In 2020, the Washington State Legislature created the Sustainable Farms and Fields (SFF) grant program to incentivize farmers, ranchers, and aquaculture operations to increase carbon sequestration and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. If the SFF is funded as a pilot project for the USDA, it would be a valuable example of how a voluntary incentive program to climate-smart farming can be implemented at the state level.
