REAP Application Writing Services
The “Rural Energy for America Program” (REAP) povides guaranteed loan financing and grant funding to agricultural producers and rural small businesses for renewable energy systems or to make energy efficiency improvements.
Funding cycles and maximum funding amounts are announced each year via federal “Notice of Funding Availability” (NOFA) or “Notice of Solicitation of Applications” (NOSA).
This is a competitive program with a state pool of funding to be competed for first, and all non-awarded applications are then moving on to a national competition.
Kraut Consulting offers a complete writing and packaging service for the grant portion of the “Rural Energy for America Program” (REAP). Once completed, Kraut Consulting will submit the application on your behalf to USDA and will guide you through the subsequent approval and (if approved) reporting process.
Loan Guaranty Applications
Applications for the loan guaranty section of the REAP program require a participating lender, willing to finance part of the project, that will submit the application on your behalf. Kraut Consulting can assist your lender in preparing the application, if required.
