Vilsack teases grants from USDA’s Climate Smart Program at FPS

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says grants from USDA’s Climate Smart Commodities Program will increase resilience, expand market opportunities, and strengthen rural America.

Vilsack said requests from more than 1,000 applications topped $20 billion.

“It said to me that we are really on to something here.  Our farmers and ranchers are really interested in creating new revenue streams.  They’re interested in reducing their greenhouse gas input. They’re interested in figuring out ways to be more productive.
