The Biodiesel Fuel Education Program was originally established in the Farm Security Investment Act of 2002. Its goal is to raise awareness of the benefits of biodiesel fuel use. The program has been reauthorized consistently in every five-year Farm Bill
since then. However, in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, Congress provided no funds for the program.
The Bioenergy Program for Advanced Biofuels (or Advanced Biofuel Payment Program) provides direct financial incentives for
producers of qualifying advanced biofuels. Originally adopted in the 2008 Farm Bill, Congress continues to reauthorize and fund the program.
