FREE Webinar: Navigating the USDA REAP Application Process

Joanna Schroeder

The Blend Your Own (BYO) Ethanol Campaign is hosting a FREE webinar called “Navigating the USDA REAP Application Process.” The webinar will provide participants with updated and in-depth information on ethanol blending, mid-level ethanol blends, E85 and infrastructure incentives. The BYO Ethanol Campaign is a joint effort between the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) and the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE).

In addition, the webinar will provide information on the Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Energy for America Program (REAP). The program has allocated $70 million in funding for retailers interested in expanding or updating their renewable fuel infrastructure with blender pumps. The monies are delivered through a combination of grants and loan guarantees. The USDA has a goal of installing 10,000 blender pumps in the next 15 years throughout the country. Applications are due June 15, 2011.

The webinar is being held on Monday, May 16, 2011 at 3:00 pm EDT. Although this webinar is free, you are encouraged to register by visiting
