Pacific Coast Coalition – Dairy Business Innovation Initiative
The PCC-DBII supports dairy farmers and businesses across six Western states through funding, resources and partnerships.
$4.1 million available to Dairy Processors in January 2024
Applications will open January 2 – February 29, 2024
Open to applicants in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington. This fourth round of funding will include pandemic recovery (such as price declines and additional marketing costs due to COVID-19), as the majority of those monies are derived from the federal CARES Act.
Our grantees are focusing on products and methods connected to value-added product development, product line expansion, alternative processing technologies and sustainability enhancement methods that increase profitability.
Vigorous partnerships are key to addressing the significant issues facing the Pacific Coast region’s dairy industry. Our noteworthy network of academic and business partners enables the PCC-DBII initiative to leverage the technical and research capabilities that will power its success.
Explore PCC’s eLearning HUB to access webinars, trainings and videos, as well as MILKulture research. You can also explore innovative product ideas and get help for questions or issues regarding your dairy technology.
