TASC: Availability of Funds For FY 2010

The TASC program is designed to assist U. S. organizations

by providing funding for projects that address sanitary, phytosanitary,

or related technical barriers that prohibit or threaten the export of

U. S. specialty crops.

U. S. specialty crops, for the

credit:


purpose of the TASC

program, are defined to include all cultivated plants, or the products

thereof, produced in the United States, except wheat, feed grains,

oilseeds, cotton, rice, peanuts, sugar, and tobacco.

As a general matter, TASC program projects should be designed to

address the following criteria:

Projects should address a sanitary, phytosanitary, or

related technical barrier that prohibits or threatens the export of

U. S. specialty crops;

Projects should demonstrably benefit the represented

industry rather than a specific company or brand; and

Projects must address barriers to exports of commercially-

available U. S. specialty crops for which barrier removal would

predominantly benefit U. S. exports.
