The USDA is looking to work with state departments of agriculture, state agricultural experiment stations and other agencies to help promote American-produced food and agriculture products.
Those with innovative ideas should send proposals for the Federal-State Marketing Improvement Program. Kathleen Merrigan, Deputy Ag Secretary said the program is a great way for agencies to help tackle the market and distribution issues many farmers face.
The funds available for the program are to be used to distribute American-produced products not only across the United States, but to export products around the world as well.
The USDA is particularly interested in proposals that require states to work together.
