Biofuel Infrastructure Partnership

The objective of BIP is to expand infrastructure for renewable fuels, in order to increase the demand for ethanol, by offering competitive grants to States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C.

Federal funds, matched with state and private contributions, will create innovative
ways to distribute higher blends of renewable fuel.

Agency - Department of Agriculture

Established in 1862, the Department of Agriculture serves all Americans through anti-hunger efforts, stewardship of nearly 200 million acres of national forest and rangelands, and through product safety and conservation efforts. The USDA opens markets for American farmers and ranchers and provides food for needy people around the world.
