USDA Accepting New Applications for the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP) through September 30

Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) opened another window to accept new applications in grants through the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP) which covers up to 75% of project costs for new biodiesel and ethanol infrastructure. $450 million was originally allotted towards the program. The current application window to distribute the $90 million in HBIIP grants began July 1, 2024, and ends September 30, 2024.

The Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program provides an opportunity for liquid fuel marketers to upgrade your fuel dispensers, blending equipment, storage tanks, and more. It also provides $18 million for fuel distribution facilities, including terminal operations, and $67.5 million for transportation fueling facilities, including fueling stations and convenience stores, among others.

Last month, the PPA hosted a webinar on the HBIIP which included insight from a PPA member with grant writing experience as another PPA fuel distributor who was a recent HBIIP recipient.
