CFEP aims to provide information as it pertains to energy and agriculture in Connecticut through the CFEP website, email updates, publications, workshops and events it hosts and participates in.

CFEP serves as a resource and clearinghouse for information about on-farm energy opportunities in relation to grant opportunities, financial incentives, loans, audits, educational opportunities and events for AG producers & AG based small business located in Connecticut. CFEP works closely with Federal, State and local partners.

CFEP provides technical assistance in the form of grant writing to eligible Connecticut Ag producers & Ag based small business in applying for USDA – Rural Development REAP (Rural Energy for America Program) Grants. REAP Grants which are part of the Farm Bill, provide assistance to those who are eligible with Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy projects.
