USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service awarded nearly $1 million in grants through the Federal-State Marketing Improvement Program (FSMIP) to strengthen and explore new market opportunities for U.S. food and agricultural products.
The FSMIP grant program, administered by AMS, includes $982,437 in matching grants to 12 projects in 10 states. FSMIP provides matching funds to state departments of agriculture, state agricultural experiment stations, and other appropriate state agencies to assist in exploring new market opportunities for U.S. food and agricultural products, and to encourage research and innovation aimed at improving the efficiency and performance of the marketing system.

"Success in farming is not about just growing a crop, it’s about growing a crop and knowing how to sell it,” said AMS Administrator Elanor Starmer. “FSMIP grants leverage federal and state resources to develop innovative marketing programs to increase sales, which strengthen local economies and improve the bottom line for everyone."
