Millions in Federal Funding Now Available for Fuel Dispenser Upgrades

Considering getting into higher fuel blends of ethanol like E15 or E85? Make sure you’re taking advantage of the free money from the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP).

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is targeting businesses with 10 or fewer sites with the program to encourage more sales and use higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel blends.

E15, E85, and other high blends of ethanol must be stored in specialized compatible equipment. HBIIP funds are being made available to help ease the costs related to upgrading fuel dispensers (gas and diesel pumps) and attached equipment, underground storage tanks, and more.

The number and size of the HBIIP grants will depend on the successful number of applicants. The agency expects to give out about 150 awards, providing assistance to 1,500 locations.
