Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program Information

The Iowa Renewable Infrastructure Program 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. Heat biodiesel terminal equipment and/or infrastructure can receive funding for up to $100,000 per project. 

The grant program is managed by Harold Hommes at the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS). To contact Hommes please call 515-242-6237 or email harold.hommes@iowaagriculture.gov.
