NIHC last year received funding from the U.S. Department of Agricultural (USDA) Market Access Program (MAP) to support export market development of industrial hemp.  

MAP funds are administered through USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). Through the MAP program, FAS partners with U.S. agricultural trade associations, cooperatives, state regional trade groups and small businesses to share the costs of overseas marketing and promotional activities that help build commercial export markets for U.S. agricultural products and commodities.

Funds can be used for facilitating trade missions and meeting with industry stakeholders and government regulators overseas.
