Two export market development programs - USDA

20
Jan '07
The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that it is accepting applications until Feb. 12, 2007, for two export market development programs—the Quality Samples Program (QSP) and the Technical Assistance for Specialty Crops (TASC) program.

The QSP helps U.S. exporters provide samples of American commodities to foreign buyers who have not previously used them, as a means to encourage new purchases.

The program supports projects that benefit whole industries rather than individual companies. When a project is finished, USDA reimburses the costs for procuring and exporting the samples.

The TASC program helps open, retain and expand markets for U.S. specialty crops. Resources are provided to address barriers, including phytosanitary or related technical restrictions that prohibit or threaten the export of U.S. specialty crops.

Specialty crops include all cultivated plants and their products produced in the United States except wheat, feed grains, oilseeds, cotton, rice, peanuts, sugar and tobacco.

QSP and TASC proposals received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Feb. 12, 2007, will be considered in a competitive review process. Applications received after the deadline may be considered if funding remains following the completion of the initial round.
