Marin County has begun accepting applications for a new $800,000-per-year environmental grant program made possible by a rejiggering of Measure A tax revenue.

The Food, Agriculture and Resilient Ecosystems program is designed to advance a laundry list of objectives on farming, the climate and natural resources. Methods to improve natural resource values include carbon-capture farming, community gardens and increasing access to low-cost farming for low-income communities.
