Renewable Fuel Production Grants

Archived: 10/01/2007

Qualified producers may be eligible for a grant of $0.20 for each gallon of ethanol, biodiesel, or renewable diesel, or $0.20 for each MMBtu of renewable methane, produced from renewable resources. To participate, producers must pay a fee of $0.032 per gallon of liquid fuel or MMBtu of gaseous fuel produced at each registered production facility. The grant is available to registered producers for up to 18 million gallons or MMBtu per fiscal year at any one production facility. Funding for this grant program was discontinued in September 2007 and no subsequent actions have been taken to reinstate funding.
