The Minnesota Department of Agriculture has announced that it will be providing $300,000 in grants to qualified applicants to use for the addition of infrastructure that would allow for the blending of biodiesel in all types of weather, including cold conditions.  Facilities must offer biodiesel for a minimum of five years, contingent upon the availability of diesel or biodiesel fuel. The Grantee must notify the Minnesota Department of Agriculture in writing in the event that diesel or biodiesel fuel is not readily available.  Complete information is available on the Department’s website.

The deadline for submitting applications is December 12, 2008.
