Grant panel seeks people
SACRAMENTO -- People with expertise on California's specialty crop industry have until Dec. 3 to apply for posts on a technical review panel for 2013 block grants.
The committee will review, evaluate and make recommendations to the state Department of Food and Agriculture on projects to be funded, a news release explains.
Grant awards will range from $50,000 to $400,000 per project, provided that the 2012 farm bill passes, the release states.
