The US Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service is awarding $202.7 million to more than 60 US agricultural organizations to help expand export markets for US farm and food products through the Market Access Program, also known as MAP, and the Foreign Market Development, or FMD Program .

“In this unique public-private partnership, USDA and the American agricultural industry are working together to expand markets for high-quality, American-made farm and food products worldwide,” said FAS Administrator Daniel Whitley. “With industry matching funds, federal investments in these market development programs not only increase agricultural export revenue and volume, but also improve farm income and strengthen the US economy.”
