$20 million grant available to Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri pork producers to advance climate-smart agriculture practices.
In September 2022, the Advancing U.S. Pork Sustainability and Market Value grant submitted by National Pork Board (NPB) and six collaborating organizations was awarded $20 million through USDA’s Partnership for Climate Smart Commodities program.
The grant program is designed to increase the sustainability of U.S. pork products by advancing climate-smart agriculture practices in Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri.
Grant Supports Climate-Smart On-Farm Practices
The grant will support the completion of We Care® on-farm reports by pork producers in three states, and it will incentivize the adoption of climate-smart practices that are recommended through the reporting process.
No two farms are the same, so the project team will look to implement practices tailored to growers’ needs and report progress toward meaningful climate benefits.Click here to see more...
