USDA Biofuel Infrastructure Partnership

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced that 21 states will receive grants through the Biofuel Infrastructure Partnership (BIP) to install nearly 5,000 pumps offering higher blends of ethanol (E15 and E85) to supply more renewable fuel to America’s drivers. This will be made possible by matching the $100 million federal investment with private and state resources at a more than one-to-one ratio. Those southeast states potentially set to receive grants and the number of pumps expected to be installed include: Florida – 892; Louisiana – 110; Missouri – 171; North Carolina – 190; Texas – 763; Virginia-Maryland 191; West Virginia – 107. The competitive grants program was announced in May 2015 and the deadline for states to submit proposals was July 15, 2015.
