Take a minute to look at these assistance and promotions programs available to you, and if you’d like more insight and assistance with the grant programs, please contact us:
The Iowa Renewable Infrastructure Program, managed by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship is designed to assist retail operators of motor fuel dispensing sites or fueling stations in the conversion of their equipment to allow the expanded use of renewable fuels in Iowa. The program also provides grant incentives to encourage these upgrades.
To sweeten the deal, reimbursements can be provided for 50 percent of the costs for specific components of a project with a three-year commitment (there are requirements to sell certain renewable fuels). A five-year commitment to store and sell renewable fuels and install certain equipment can result in up to 70 percent reimbursement for specific equipment or installation costs. Heated biodiesel terminal equipment and/or infrastructure can receive funding for up to $100,000 per project.
