The Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) is revising regulations to implement a Trade Mitigation Program (TMP) for producers of 2019 agricultural commodities that have been significantly impacted by trade actions of foreign governments resulting in the loss of exports. As part of TMP, the Expanded Domestic Commodity Donation Program regulation specifies disposition of surplus commodities through outlets not currently used in existing Food and Nutrition Service programs, the application process, eligibility and use of grants or cooperative agreements. The rule adds new subparts to the TMP regulation to address the 2019 agricultural commodities. This final rule is effective today, July 29. More information can be found here.
