Special to The Digest

A series of PowerPoint Presentations outlining key Federal Financial Programs and Assistance that are available to support the domestic bioeconomy have been provided.  This was not intended to be an” all inclusive” listing of federal programs/resources available.  The PowerPoints were divided into the three primary phases of domestic project development – Research and Development; PRE-Commercial/Demonstration Scale; and Commercial Scale.  The programs and resources that have been identified are unique in the types of projects/ purposes that are eligible.  Some of the programs/resources have limitations such as:

  • types of innovative technology
  • types of eligible applicants 
  • assistance limited to rural areas
  • assistance limited to size of business applicant
  • assistance application windows limited to certain times of the year
  • assistance limited to certain amounts per application/project

Continue to the next page to get the details about available federal funding and programs from R&D stage like SBIR. STTR, DOE National Labs, to demo scale and commercial scale support like National Science Foundation I-Corp Program (ICAP), DOE Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E), USDA Biofuels, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Assistance Program, USDA Rural Energy For America Program (REAP), DOE Title XVII Loan Program for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (REEE), and many other programs that can help biofuels and the bioeconomy during these challenging times.
