      How do I Apply?
      Applications are currently being accepted for 2005 funding under
      Section 9006 of the Farm Bill. The application must be postmarked no
      later than June 27, 2005. The Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA)
      provides complete details on the application process. A copy of the
      NOFA is available in pdf format, as published in the Federal
      Register.

      Applications should be directed to the rural energy coordinators at
      your respective USDA State Rural Development Offices. The rural
      energy coordinator will also be able to answer questions and discuss
      the USDA environmental requirements that must be met for your
      proposed project. You should contact the office where your project
      is located, or, in the case of a rural small business, where you are
      headquartered.

      For further information on the technical requirements, including
      guidance from technology experts on how to complete your
      application, go to Technical Requirements (see navigation bar on
      left for specific technologies).

      For links to the standard government forms mentioned in the Notice
      of Funds Availability, go to Section 9006 Forms.

      Who is Eligible under the NOFA?


      Pursuant to the Farm Bill, eligible applicants include agricultural
      producers and rural small businesses. To be eligible for grants,
      applicants must demonstrate financial need. Some of the key
      definitions the 2005 program are as follows:
      • Rural -- Any area other than a city or town that has a
      population of greater than 50,000 inhabitants and the urbanized area
      contiguous and adjacent to such a city or town according to the
      latest decennial census of the United States. Contact State Rural
      Energy Coordinator to determine if you and your project qualify
      as "rural." Find your Rural Energy Coordinator.
      • Agricultural producer - An individual or entity directly
      engaged in the production of agricultural products, including crops
      (including farming); livestock (including ranching); forestry
      products; hydroponics; nursery stock; or aquaculture, whereby 50
      percent or greater of their gross income is derived from the
      operations.
      • Small business - A private entity including a sole
      proprietorship, partnership, corporation, and a cooperative
      (including a cooperative qualified under section 501(c)(12) of the
      Internal Revenue Code).
      o Excludes any private entity formed solely for a charitable
      purpose;
      o Must be considered a small business concern in accordance
      with the Small Business Administration's (SBA) Small Business Size
      Standards by North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)
      Industry found in 13 CFR part 121;
      o Including all parent, affiliate, or subsidiary entities at
      other locations.

      • Demonstrated financial need -- the applicant must
      demonstrate that it is unable to finance the project from its own
      resources or other funding sources without grant assistance.

      Other provisions of applicant eligibility for the 2005 program are:
      • Individuals must be citizens of the United States (U.S.) or
      reside in the U.S. after being legally admitted for permanent
      residence.
      • Entities must be at least 51 percent owned, directly or
      indirectly, by individuals who are either citizens of the U.S. or
      reside in the U.S. after being legally admitted for permanent
      residence.
      • If an applicant is applying as a rural small business, the
      business headquarters must be in a rural area.
      • If the applicant or an owner has an outstanding judgment
      obtained by the United States in a Federal Court (other than in the
      United States Tax Court), is delinquent in the payment of Federal
      income taxes, or is delinquent on a Federal debt, the applicant is
      not eligible to receive a grant until the judgment is paid in full
      or otherwise satisfied or the delinquency is resolved.
