Rick Karlin reports in Capitol Confidential that Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced $1.4 million in grants for farmers to make their operations more energy efficient, and more resilient in the face of climate-related challenges. So flood-ravaged farms can apply to take actions that work for the environment and their business. “This first-ever grant program addresses the need to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of farms, while also enhancing the ability of those farms to recover after severe weather events which have become an all too frequent reality," Cuomo said in a statement. Applicants for the Climate Resilient Farming grant program must submit proposals by 4:30 p.m. Dec. 14, 2015. through the Grants Gateway system at https://www.grantsgateway.ny.gov.
