The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) Grant Program provides financial assistance to agricultural producers and rural small businesses in rural America to purchase, install, and construct renewable energy systems; make energy efficiency improvements to non-residential buildings and facilities; use renewable technologies that reduce energy consumption; and participate in energy audits, renewable energy development assistance, and feasibility studies. It is often used in conjunction with the REAP loan guarantee program.
An ancillary REAP grant program grants on a competitive basis up to 25% of total eligible costs for renewable energy feasibility studies. More on Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) Grant Program.
