ALBANY, N.Y. (WCAX) - Farmers and landowners in New York who combat climate change were awarded millions to keep going.

The program is called the Climate Smart Farms and Forests Project.

Gov. Kathy Hochul says a $60 million grant was awarded under the first round of a USDA partnership.

She said these practices reduce greenhouse gas emissions and/or sequester carbon.

State leaders say the money will help identify why it’s hard for some to go green, develop new tools and refine practices to achieve climate goals.
