High-Speed Rail Agricultural Land Mitigation Grant Program

The 2014 Request for Grant Applications (2014 RFGA), developed for the High-Speed Rail agricultural land mitigation program, is now available.  The 2014 RFGA, Application Form, and supporting documents are used in preparing applications for funding, beginning in November 2014. 

The 2014 RFGA solicits applications for the purchase of agricultural conservation easements on land in counties within the San Joaquin Valley that will contain the alignment and maintenance facilities of the high-speed train system.  The 2014 RFGA contains background on the program as well as instructions for the Application Form.     

All documents are in Word format unless noted.
