What is SWEEP?
California’s State Water Efficiency and Enhancement Program (SWEEP) was created to provide financial incentives for agricultural operations to invest in irrigation systems that save water and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Eligible system components include soil moisture monitoring, drip systems, switching to low pressure irrigation systems, pump retrofits, variable frequency drives and installation of renewable energy to reduce on-farm water use and energy
Projects funded so far
SWEEP has made grant awards to 1,111 projects, covering over 168,000 acres. More than $123 million has been awarded to date, with more than $70 million in matching funds. CDFA received $50 million in 2021. Of that, $10.8 million was awarded to socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers, while $4.5 million was invested in projects that benefit priority populations.
