The MAP is authorized under Section 203 of the Agricultural Trade Act of 1978, as amended.

MAP regulations appear at 7 CFR part 148 5. Purpose:
The MAP is designed to create, expand, and maintain foreign markets for U. S. agricultural commodities and products through cost-share

credit:


assistance.

Financial assistance under the MAP will be made available on a competitive basis, and applications will be reviewed against the evaluation criteria contained herein and in the MAP regulations.

All U. S. agricultural commodities, except tobacco, are eligible for consideration.

The FAS allocates funds in a manner that effectively supports the strategic decision-making initiatives of the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 and the USDA's Food and Agricultural Policy (FAP).

In deciding whether a proposed project will contribute to the effective creation, expansion, or maintenance of foreign markets, the FAS seeks to identify a clear, long-term agricultural trade strategy and a program effectiveness time line against which results can be measured at specific intervals using quantifiable product or country goals.

The FAS also considers the extent to which a proposed project targets markets with the greatest growth potential.

These factors are part of the FAS resource allocation strategy to fund applicants who can demonstrate performance and address the objectives of the GPRA and FAP.
