The U.S. Department of Agriculture is accepting applications for $450 million in grants through the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP).

According to an announcement from the Energy Marketers of America, the grants cover up to 75% or $5 million of total project costs to help facilities convert infrastructure such as pumps, dispensers and storage tanks, to higher-blend fuels.

The fuels must be greater than 10% for ethanol and greater than 5% for biodiesel. The HBIIP funds are available to retail and wholesale fueling/storage facilities.
