WASHINGTON (CN) - The Commodity Credit Corporation plans to implement the new Biomass Crop Assistance Program authorized by the 2008 Farm Bill.
The program is to assist agricultural and forest land owners and operators with the establishment and production of eligible crops including woody biomass in selected project areas for conversion to bioenergy, and the collection, harvest, storage, and transportation of eligible material for use in a biomass conversion facility. This rule specifies the requirements for eligible participants, biomass conversion facilities, and biomass crops and materials. It also provides notice of final termination of the existing Notice of Funds Availability.
