How to (Successfully) Secure Grants and Incentives to Pay for Your Next Project
August 16th at 11am CST, we will have our fifth webinar of the BFC-W series on Project Incentives.
Incentives for projects vary based on a variety of factors including: the type of incentives you are looking to gain, the purpose behind the incentive (traditionally the purpose will relate to business creation or expansion), the source from which you are looking to receive the grant, and the amount of funding you must obtain to complete your project. Join us as we analyze what funding is available for projects that impact the Ethanol industry, and the best way to coordinate your efforts to optimize the outcome.
This webinar will be broken into three parts. The topics will be:
How Incentives Help You
This webinar look at types of incentives that are available, how they can help your business, when in the process of your project you should start evaluating them, and the types of considerations that are important to a successful incentives undertaking.
Sources of Incentives/Our Process
We will then review our process by which we help you identify, apply for, and obtain various sources of funding. This includes the anchor grant, the incentives study, additional funding opportunities, and long lead time application requirements common to many programs (business plan, feasibility study, financial forecast, environmental assessment, technical/engineer review, etc.).
Case Studies – Examples of Success and Failure
Finally, we will share case studies – these studies will include lessons we can learn from endeavors that fell short of expectations, as well as examples of when the number and type of incentives available made a significant impact on a business.
If you’re planning to expand or retro t your biofuels facility, it could be possible for you to obtain significant funding from government agencies and other sources to help move the project forward.
Incentives for projects vary based on a variety of factors including:
- The type of incentives you are looking to gain, the purpose behind the incentive (traditionally the purpose will relate to business creation or expansion)
- The source from which you are looking to receive the grant, and
- The amount of funding you must obtain to complete your project.
Obtaining these grants and incentives can be a serious undertaking, there are a number of technical requirements that, if overlooked, can get a highly qualified project rejected. On the other hand, they can provide incredible benefits to you as you embark on your next project at your plant.
This is your opportunity to learn more about successfully securing grants and other incentives to help pay for your next project.
