USDA's Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) is providing funding for rural small business owners and farmers to make energy efficiency improvements or to install energy systems and is currently accepting applications for assistance. Mr. Vilsack (Agriculture Secretary) recently said, "Developing renewable energy presents an enormous economic opportunity for rural America. This funding will help farmers, ranchers and rural small business owners incorporate renewable energy and energy efficiency technology into their operations, create jobs and help America become more energy independent.  When small rural businesses and farmers cut their energy costs with cleaner and more efficient energy, we are both helping their bottom lines and reducing the amount of greenhouse gas pollution that affects our climate."

For application instructions, information and deadlines, please see page 25564 of the May 5, 2014 Federal Register, at https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2014/05/05.
