In 2007, the Florida Legislature established the Farm to Fuel Grants Program to provide matching grants for demonstration, commercialization, research and development projects relating to bioenergy. As part of this program, the Legislature appropriated $25 million for matching grants. The Program intends to stimulate investment in energy projects that produce bioenergy from Florida-grown crops or biomass.
Grant funds are available to Florida municipalities and county governments, established for-profit companies licensed to do business in Florida, universities and colleges in Florida, utilities located and operating within Florida, and not-for-profit organizations.
Grant applications are available on the program website above. The deadline for the 2007-08 round of applications was October 26, 2007.
