Energy Breakfast: USDA Grant Opportunities for Clean Energy

Are you a farm or small business owner looking for support for renewable energy and energy efficiency improvements? Or perhaps you’re simply curious about programs available to support rural communities? If so, September’s Energy Breakfast is one you won’t want to miss.
 
Join USDA Rural Development Program Specialist Norman Brus to learn about the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP).
 
REAP supports a wide variety of energy improvements including investment in battery storage, solar or wind energy, energy efficiency upgrades, geothermal, and more. Grants are available at  $2,500 to $500,000 for renewable energy systems projects and $1,500 to $250,000 for energy efficiency projects. You can imagine how, with a vision of 100% local, clean, efficient energy, your local energy district is happy to spread the word about these abundant and available federal programs.
 
Since 2000, Brus has been helping 16 counties in northeast Iowa access funding for rural development projects. REAP, a program of the USDA, is a series of loans and grants aimed to help increase American energy independence by increasing the private sector supply of renewable energy and reducing demand for energy through energy efficiency improvements.

Brus will also touch briefly on the Value Added Producer Grant program, a program available to agricultural producers which offers grant and matching funds which can be used for planning activities or for working capital expenses related to producing and marketing a value-added agricultural product.

Sept. 20th on the 2nd floor of the library to discuss David Grann’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.” In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma.

Edgar Hoover turned to former Texas Ranger Tom White, who put together an undercover team and began to expose one of the most sinister conspiracies in American history.

Dr. Amy Blackstone @ Dragonfly Books: Childfree by Choice

Dragonfly Books welcomes Luther College graduate Dr. Amy Blackstone for an author talk featuring her new book, Childfree by Choice: The Movement Redefining Family and Creating a New Age of Independence. Blackstone will talk about writing her book and sign books on Thursday, September 26th at 7:00 p.m. at Dragonfly Books at 112 W. Water St.

Motivated by her own experiences and those of the childfree community she has connected with, Blackstone has become a nationally recognized expert of the childfree choice who has conducted research on the subject since 2008. She shares her expertise and trail-blazing research with the world in her first book, CHILDFREE BY CHOICE: The Movement Redefining Family and Creating a New Age of Independence (Dutton 2019), a definitive investigation into the childfree choice and movement. Blackstone compellingly explores the childfree movement from its conception to today, revealing how it intersects with and has been shaped by our cultural and personal understandings of gender, race, sexual orientation, politics, environmentalism, and feminism. Dr. Amy Blackstone is a professor in Sociology and the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine, where she studies childlessness and the childfree choice, workplace harassment, and civic engagement.

Everyone is invited to join Dragonfly Books for this free event on Thursday, September 26th at 7:00 p.m. If you can't attend but would like a book, please call Dragonfly Books at 563-382-4275 to reserve a copy and have it autographed for you.
