Governor Kathy Hochul announced Tuesday that $21 million is now available to assist farmers in keeping their water clean and reducing their carbon footprint. AN additional $34 million has also been added to the FY25 Enacted Budget for advances in fluid milk storage technology.

Hochul recognized the state’s comprehensive commitment to the dairy industry by officially declaring June as Dairy Month. New York is supporting several projects for major dairy facilities and is running promotions designed to educate consumers about the industry. 

The funding is available for on-farm projects through the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) Enhanced Nutrient and Methane Management Program (CAFO ENMP). Two rounds of funding will be available, with $14 million available for the first round and $7 million available in the second.
