AgSTAR Published on 31 May 2011

On April 14, the U.S. Department of Agriculture published an interim rule for Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) in the Federal Register. This interim rule modifies the existing grant and guaranteed loan program for renewable energy systems and energy efficiency improvements. In addition, it adds a grant program for feasibility studies for renewable energy systems and a grant program for energy audits and renewable energy development assistance, as provided in the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008.

Although effective immediately, USDA is requesting comments on the interim rule. These comments must be received on or before June 13. See the Federal Register notice for instructions on submitting comments.
