Final allocations of FMD and MAP programs annonced

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) announced the final allocations of the Foreign Market Development Program (FMD) and the Market Access Program (MAP) programs for fiscal year 2011.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) announced the final allocations of the Foreign Market Development Program (FMD) and the Market Access Program (MAP) programs for fiscal year 2011.  While all the FMD program funds had been previously announced, there were still some MAP funds that had not been apportioned by the Office of Management and Budget.  With a federal budget agreement in place, FAS made additional MAP budget allocations to cooperator agricultural groups.

The rice industry as a whole received an additional $170,889, creating a MAP budget ceiling for the current fiscal year of $4.04 million, which includes a small amount of funding for wild rice promotion.  The MAP program in total is funded at a level of $200 million per year.

USA Rice Federation uses USDA MAP funds to help finance U.S. rice promotional activities in foreign markets, while FMD funds are used to develop, maintain, and expand long-term U.S. rice export markets.
