The Congressional Research Service has published a useful and concise summary of federal programs that provide direct and indirect incentives for biofuels. The report lists almost 20 active programs administered by five agencies including the Department of Agriculture, Department of Energy and Internal Revenue Service. For each program, the report lists the authorizing legislation, the annual funding, the expiration date and the targeted beneficiaries of the programs.
