On September 10th, the Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED), was announced as one of 21 state recipients of grant funds from the USDA, Farm Services Administration, for the installation of higher ethanol blender pumps, through their Biofuels Infrastructure Program (BIP).

OED is working through the contracting process, and anticipate announcing the funding opportunity very soon.
