The Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) is inviting applications for the 2020 Market Access Program (MAP). The MAP is designed to encourage the development, maintenance, and expansion of commercial export markets for United States agricultural commodities and products through cost-share assistance. Under the MAP, the Foreign Agricultural Service enters into agreements with eligible Participants to share the cost of certain overseas marketing and promotion activities. To participate in the MAP, an applicant must be a nonprofit U.S. agricultural trade organization, a nonprofit state regional trade group, a U.S. agricultural cooperative, or a state government agency. Small-sized private U.S. commercial entities may participate in a branded program through a MAP Participant. Funding of $200 million is available.
Applications must be received by June 28, 2019.
