California agriculture officials are accepting proposals through Sept. 20 for the 2023 round of CalAgPlate grants, which will provide about $250,000 for ag education at all levels in the state.
The state Department of Food and Agriculture-led program aims to boost knowledge of agriculture and nutrition, introduce young people to potential ag-related careers and enhance public knowledge about food production.
Proceeds for the grant program are generated through the sales of specialized, agriculture-themed license plates offered by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Funding is available on a competitive basis for education programs, government agencies and nonprofit organizations.
Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the program website.
The CalAgPlate program has funded more than $2.1 million in youth educational activities since the program’s inception. You can help support agricultural education by purchasing a special interest license plate at your local DMV office or online.
