Advanced Biofuel Producer Payment Program (Section 9005)
This new program was created by the 2008 Farm Bill. It makes
incentive payments to all enrolled producers of "advanced biofuels."
(Advanced biofuels include commercial-quality biodiesel, ethanol
made from non-corn-kernel starch feedstock (including cellulosic
ethanol), and other types of biofuel and biogas) Payments are
intended to encourage the expanding production of these biofuels. The size of the incentive
payment will depend on the number of producers participating in the
program and the BTUs of biofuel produced. Rural and urban producers
are eligible for these incentives.
USDA Rural Development normally accepts applications between
Oct 1st and Oct 31st for the next funding round. We
anticipate another 30 day window to accept applications for fiscal
year 2013. This Notice for fiscal year 2013 has yet to be announced.
