CDFA announces funding for 2020 California Agriculture Special Interest License Plate Grant Program to support ag literacy

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Food and Agriculture is now accepting proposals for the 2020 California Agriculture Special Interest License Plate grant program.

Each year, this program provides an estimated $250,000 in grant funding to promote agricultural education and leadership activities for students at the K-12, post-secondary, and adult education levels.

Proceeds generated through the sales of specialized, agriculture-themed license plates through the California Department of Motor Vehicles have made this opportunity available.

Funding is available on a competitive basis for eligible agricultural education programs as well as government agencies and nonprofit organizations that administer agricultural education programs.

Proposals must be submitted electronically by Thursday, Oct. 22, at 5 pm PST.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the program website for full details or contact CDFA ’s Office of Grants Administration at 916-657-3231 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for additional information.

The CalAgPlate program has funded more than $1.4 million in youth educational activities since the program's inception.

You can help support agricultural education and the CalAgPlate program by purchasing a special interest license plate at your local DMV office or online today.
