The USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) administers the AMA using relevant sections of the Organic Foods Production Act of 1990 and the Uniform Grant Guidance, 2 CFR 20 0.

This is the initial request for applications from sixteen State Agencies, in accordance with the issuance of the AMS “Organic Certification Cost Share Programs Fiscal Year 2015 Terms and Conditions”, which outlines the eligibility and performance criteria for State Agencies seeking annual AMA funds.

Certified organic producers may request reimbursement for specific certification costs incurred from October 1, 2014 through September 30, 201 5. To receive AMA cost share assistance, certified organic producers must contact their respective State Department of Agriculture.
