About

CDFA’s Alternative Manure Management Program (AMMP) provides financial assistance for the implementation of non-digester manure management practices in California, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Alternative manure management practices involve handling manure in ways that don't involve using an anaerobic digester. Currently, eligible practices for funding through AMMP include: pasture-based management; alternative manure treatment and storage (such as compost bedded pack barns); and solid separation or conversion from flush to scrape in conjunction with some form of drying or composting of collected manure.

Commodities

Eligibility

Projects must have existing conditions in which manure is stored in anaerobic (wet) conditions (e.g. a lagoon) with a proposal to store manure in aerobic (dry) conditions (e.g., compost) to achieve reductions in methane.
