Iowa Renewable fuel Retail recovery program

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) is seeking applications for grants to assist retail operators of fueling stations that have suffered business interruptions or income losses due to COVID-19.  Applicants must show that funds awarded will be used for a renewable fuel project planned or begun between March 1 and December 30, 2020. Funds from the Program will be awarded to retail businesses that are dispensing, or have plans to dispense, ethanol blends of E15 or higher. Projects considered can include, but are not limited to, expenses incurred for the construction, installation, upgrade, and retrofit of equipment associated with the sale of renewable fuels. Replacement equipment must dispense a higher percentage blend of ethanol (for example from E10 to E15) than the existing equipment. Adding new equipment to an existing site is permissible. The program has a targeted assistance goal of making 40 percent of funds available for applicants owning 10 or fewer retail fueling dispensing sites (and owning at least one) and 60 percent of funds available for applicants owning more than 10 fuel sites.

If interested, please contact Iowa Corn/IRFA Retailer Outreach Coordinator Brian Kinney at e15foriowa@yahoo.com or 515.689.7965.
