NCDA Now Accepting Applications for Bioenergy Grants

The NC Bioenergy Research Initiative is accepting grant proposals focused on research and development of agricultural and forestry based feedstocks for bioenergy production.

North Carolina’s Ag Commissioner Steve Troxler says that the General Assembly approved $1 million for the program in this year’s budget.  About $242,000 has been committed to multi-year projects that were started with last year’s grant cycle which means almost $758,000 is available for new and existing projects.
