More Time and More Funding for Farm Energy Grants and Loans

May 17, 2013

USDA has announced that the deadline for applying for FY2013 Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) grants, loans, and feasibility studies has been extended to May 31, 2013.

The deadline is extended because USDA has additional funds provided for in the FY2013 Appropriations.  In the announcement of the extension, USDA indicated it would issue another official notice about the funding increase soon.

The Environmental Law and Policy Center has reported that the FY2013 funding level is raised from $20.8 million to about $60 million.  With the additional funding, USDA is also raising the cap on grants for feasibility studies to $350,000.

For more information, see our March blog on the original announcement of the REAP request for applications.
