The Agricultural Trade Promotion
Program is a cost-share program that is designed to reimburse
nonprofit U.S. agricultural trade organizations, nonprofit state
regional trade groups, U.S. agricultural cooperatives, and state
agencies that conduct approved foreign market development
activities and have suffered damages as a result of tariffs imposed
on U.S. agricultural products in 2018/2019.

The initial information
collection cost and burden hour calculations included the
preparation and review of applications and used an estimated number
of program participants. Because the program is no longer open to
applications and the total number of program participants is now
known, FAS has more precise information to make the calculations.
This updated information collection request eliminates the burden
estimates for the submission and review of the applications and
reduces the total number of respondents from 71 to 63, resulting in
a decrease in burden hours from 63,978 to 55,029.
