This new program, which is authorized under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, directs USDA to partner with no less than one qualified institution to support the scale-up of sustainable bioproduct manufacturing, with the goal of providing a low-cost alternative to conventional products. Input received from this listening session, in addition to comments received via email at, will help shape the content for the program’s Request for Applications.
