PCC-DBII Grant Winners

Since its inception in 2021, the PCC-DBII has directed more than $25 million into optimizing the resources available to the small and medium multi-generational family businesses responsible for our nation’s milk, cheese, yogurt and more.

In its first cycle of funding, the Pacific Coast Coalition – Dairy Business Initiative provided awards to eight awardees, with grants ranging from $10,000 – $50,000. During the second funding cycle, over $4 million in grant funding was awarded to 27 dairy companies. Awardees span four states and will receive between $1500 and $1,000,000 for innovation and sustainability-related investments.
