Several KLGR-area biofuel producers have received a total of over $21 million in federal grants.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has awarded major federal funding to support biofuel producers in Minnesota. The funding will provide economic support to lower costs and offset market losses through the Biofuel Producer Relief Payments program. This program, created in December 2020, is based on the bipartisan Renewable Fuel Feedstock Reimbursement Act, created in Dec. 2020.

Specifically, USDA Rural Development will provide funding to the following KLGR-area biofuel producers:

  • $14.2 million for Granite Falls Community Ethanol Plant in Granite Falls;
  • $4 million for Highwater Ethanol in Lamberton;
  • $3.3 million for Heartland Corn Products in Winthrop;

In addition, other grantees include:

  • $3 million for Chippewa Valley Ethanol Coop in Benson;
  • $2.7 million for Minnesota Soybean Processors in Brewster; and
  • $2.4 million for Denco II in Morris;
  • $8 million for Al-Corn Clean Fuel in Claremont; and
  • $29 thousand for Ever Cat Fuels in Anoka.

Biofuel processors Poet, ADM, and Gevo that operate in multiple states, including facilities in Minnesota, also received over $102 million through the program.
