Have you heard about REAP?

Did you know you could get up to 25% of your project funded by the Rural Energy of America Program (REAP) through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)?

So what is REAP?

REAP provides grant funding and loan guarantees to rural small businesses to make energy efficiency and/or renewable energy improvements to their facilities.

Grant funding is available for up to 25% of the total cost of the project (up to $250,000), while loan guarantees are also available for up to 75% of the total cost of the project (up to $25,000,000).

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis by the Rural Development Office in each state. While applications are ranked based on the project and funding cannot be guaranteed, MAMTC has never had an issue getting funding approved for clients.

Is your business eligible?

Businesses must have less than 500 employees and be located in a rural area with less than 50,000 inhabitants.

How can MAMTC help you?

MAMTC, Mid-America Manufacturing Technology Center, has developed a 3 Phase Program to help businesses in Kansas secure funding for their energy efficiency improvement projects through the REAP grant.

The first phase of the program is a low cost energy audit to identify key areas of your facility that could benefit from energy efficient updates or changes. This audit will include a lighting analysis, miscellaneous electricity usage analysis, heating and cooling analysis, thermal imaging (infrared photography), building walls and roofs analysis, windows and skylights analysis, and water analysis. After the audit is completed, the MAMTC team will present a detailed analysis report that will outline recommended projects, along with calculated estimates of costs and projected savings.

After the considering the report and deciding on a project to pursue, MAMTC will then assist in the grant application process. MAMTC will assist in compiling and completing the grant application.

The final phase is solution implementation. MAMTC can provide complete prjoect management, if needed.
