OMB Number: 0551–0026.
Expiration Date of Approval:
September 30, 2022.
Type of Request: Extension of a

collection.
Abstract: The primary objective of the
FMD and MAP programs is to encourage
and aid in the creation, maintenance,
and expansion of commercial export
markets for U.S. agricultural products
through cost-share assistance to eligible
trade organizations. The programs are a
cooperative effort between CCC and
eligible trade organizations. Currently,
there are approximately 67
organizations participating directly in
the programs with activities in more
than 100 countries.
Prior to initiating program activities,
each FMD or MAP participant must
submit a detailed application to FAS
which includes an assessment of
overseas market potential; market or
country strategies, constraints, goals,
and benchmarks; proposed market
development activities; estimated
budgets; and performance
measurements. Each FMD or MAP
participant is also responsible for
submitting: (1) reimbursement claims
for approved costs incurred in carrying
out approved activities, (2) an end-ofyear contribution report, (3) travel
reports, and (4) progress reports/
evaluation studies. FMD or MAP
participants must maintain records on
all information submitted to FAS. The
information collected is used by FAS to
manage, plan, evaluate, and account for
government resources. The reports and
records are required to ensure the
proper and judicious use of public
funds.
Estimate of Burden: Public reporting
burden for this collection of information
is currently estimated to average 21
hours per response.
Type of Respondents: Non-profit
agricultural trade organizations, nonprofit state regional trade groups,
agricultural cooperatives, and state
agencies.
