California Food Processors – You May Qualify for Up To $8 Million in Project Funding

What is the Food Production Investment Program (FPIP)?

The food processing industry is one of California’s largest producers of greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions contribute to global climate change, as well as negatively impacting local air quality and public health. In an effort to help the state’s food processors reduce their energy use and subsequent emissions profile, the California Energy Commission created the FPIP grant program. This grant program prioritizes projects that will most benefit disadvantaged and low-income communities.

  • Grants Cover Up to 85% of Eligible Costs for Qualified Projects
  • Funding Ranges from $100K to $8MM Per Project
  • Projects Reduce Energy Costs While Upgrading Critical Processing Infrastructure
  • Funding Pays for Equipment, Measurement and Verification and Engineering Design Costs

Qualifying Projects

As of 2019, the FPIP Program has Helped Food Producers Save More than 304-Million kWh’s of Electricity.

Currently, the FPIP has allocated $10 million for Tier 1 projects with an additional $25 million expected to release in 2023.

Through a competitive application process, FPIP awards grants to projects that improve public health with a higher application score for projects in identified priority communities.
