To promote safer, more sustainable pest management practices in California, the Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) annually funds Alliance projects that promote or increase the implementation, expansion, or adoption of effective, proven, and affordable integrated pest management (IPM) systems or practices that reduce risks to human health and the environment in agricultural, urban, or wildland settings.; DPR's Alliance Grants Program has up to $1,100,000 in funding available for projects that promote or increase the implementation, expansion, or adoption of effective, proven, and affordable integrated pest management (IPM) systems or practices that reduce risks to human health and the environment in agricultural, urban, or wildland settings. Projects should focus on reducing impacts to human health or the environment from pesticides of high regulatory concern or considered high-risk. The 2024 Alliance Grants Program is particularly seeking applications that address one or more of the following topic areas: · IPM for underserved or disadvantaged communities · Decreasing the use of high-risk/high-volume pesticides (such as fumigants like 1,3-dichloropropene or sulfuryl fluoride) · Advancement of urban IPM and safer, more sustainable pest management tools and strategies in urban settings · Advancement of IPM and safer, more sustainable pest management tools and strategies in agricultural settings adjacent to or near a school(s) · Meeting the IPM needs of small growers · TWO or more of the three sustainability pillars noted below and referenced in the Sustainable Pest Management (SPM) Roadmap: 1. Human Health and Social Equity, 2. Environmental Protections, 3. Economic Vitality Successful applications will demonstrate strong partnerships, outreach, and/or an educational or training component to promote IPM and the broad application of the proposed IPM systems or practices. The most competitive Alliance Grant projects are those that can serve as a model for similar situations, have a high potential for wide adoption, and for which research has already been completed. Summaries of previously-funded Alliance Grants Program projects can be found here. The 2024 Alliance Grants application package can be found on DPR’s website. Following the deadline, applications are concurrently reviewed by DPR staff and the Pest Management Advisory Committee (PMAC). Both groups evaluate the proposal application according to scoring criteria that can be found here. Eligible grantees include nonprofits agencies, tribal governments, individuals, businesses, and public agencies. There is no limit on the number of applications that can be submitted, including multiple applications from the same person or entity. PMAC members may apply, but they must follow the rules regarding conflict of interest in the PMAC Charter. All applicants and associated project personnel must meet DPR’s eligibility requirements that can be found here.
