The US Department of Agriculture is seeking applications for fiscal year 2023 funding.

Two significant changes to the additional funding include an increase in the maximum Federal grant share from 25 to 40 percent of total project cost.

The other is an increase of maximum grant amounts from $250-thousand to $500-thousand for energy efficiency projects, as well as an increase from $500-thousand to $1-million for renewable energy systems. 

Agricultural producers and rural small businesses are eligible applicants for loan guarantees and grants to develop energy systems and to make energy efficiency improvements.

State and local government, federally-recognized tribes, land-grant colleges or universities or other institutions of higher education, rural electric cooperatives, public power entities and Resource Conservation and Development Councils are eligible applicants for grants to conduct energy audits and provide development assistance.
