USDA Grant Money Available for Biofuel-Related Infrastructure Upgrades

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced the availability of $100 million in grants with the goal of helping to increase the sale and use of biofuels derived from U.S. agricultural products. The program will market higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel by sharing the costs to build and retrofit biofuel-related infrastructure such as pumps, dispensers, and storage tanks. Municipal and county governments, along with certain non-profits and businesses, are eligible to receive grant money.
  
 Grants will cover up to 50% of total eligible project costs, but not more than $5 million, to help convert transportation fueling and fuel distribution facilities to higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel. The higher-blend fuels must be greater than 10% for ethanol and greater than 5% for biodiesel.
  
Grant applications must be submitted by 4:40 p.m., November 21. More information on the grant and eligibility requirements can be found on the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program webpage, or at Grants.gov.
