On November 17, 2022, the Department will be holding an in-person meeting with invited stakeholders to discuss the Department’s draft concept regarding the Interim Wolf-Livestock Loss Compensation Grant Program’s Pay for Presence module. The purpose of the meeting will be to provide an interactive forum for invited stakeholders, and the public, to receive and provide comments about the Program. CDFW specifically seeks to solicit feedback from the invited stakeholders; however, there will be opportunity for the public to provide additional input as well. The meeting is expected to provide: (1) updates on the Interim Compensation Grants Program, (2) a presentation and discussion on a pay for presence module, and (3) updates on CDFW’s Wolf Program activities.
While the meeting will be open to the public, invited guests to the Stakeholder Group include Agricultural Commissioners and livestock producer representatives from affected counties; California Cattlemen’s Association; California Farm Bureau; California Wool Growers Association; Working Circle; Center for Biological Diversity; Defenders of Wildlife; CA Department of Food & Agriculture; University of California-Cooperative Extension; and USDA-APHIS Wildlife Service.
