What is the CA Healthy Soils Program?

The Healthy Soils Program stems from the California Healthy Soils Initiative, a collaboration of state agencies and departments to promote the development of healthy soils on California’s farmlands and ranchlands.

The HSP has three components: the Block Grant Pilot Program, the HSP Incentives Program and the HSP Demonstration Projects.

The HSP Block Grant Pilot Program and Incentives Program provides financial assistance for implementation of conservation management that improve soil health, sequester carbon and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
