WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) is encouraging rural small businesses, farmers, and ranchers in Nevada to apply for the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP), which provides federal assistance for renewable energy systems and energy efficiency projects improvements that would help lower energy costs. Since 2018, the REAP program has provided nearly $600,000 for Nevadans, and Senator Rosen is encouraging more Nevadans to take advantage of the program. The increased funding for this program that allows for more applications to be considered comes from the Inflation Reduction Act, which Senator Rosen helped pass into law.
“Thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act I helped pass, rural Nevadans can access additional federal funding to improve their energy efficiency and help lower energy costs,” said Senator Rosen. “At a time when we are experiencing high inflation and rising prices, I encourage all eligible Nevada rural small businesses, farmers, and ranchers to take advantage of this funding opportunity.”
The next deadline to apply for a REAP grant is June 30, 2023. For more information or to start an application, visit the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s website here.
