Programs

 

 

 
The Margin Protection Program for Dairy (MPP-Dairy) is a voluntary risk management program for dairy producers authorized by the Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill) through Dec. 31, 2018. The MPP-Dairy offers protection to dairy producers when the difference between the all milk price and the average feed cost (the margin) falls below a certain dollar amount selected by the producer.

 
The Reimbursement Transportation Cost Payment Program for Geographically Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers (RTCP) assists farmers and ranchers in Alaska, Hawaii, and areas including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the Marshall Islands and Republic of Palau who paid to transport either an agricultural commodity or an input used to produce an agricultural commodity.

 

 
USDA's Milk Income Loss Contract Program (MILC) compensates dairy producers when domestic milk prices fall below a specified level. The MILC program is extended through Sept. 1, 2014, or until a new Margin Protection Program for dairy producers (MPP), established by the 2014 Farm Bill, is in place. The program has no set funding level.

 

 
Under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for Farmers Program, the U.S. Department of Agriculture helps producers of agricultural commodities adjust to competition from imports by providing them technical assistance, cash payments and opportunities for job retraining. Certain fisherman and aquaculture producers may also qualify for TAAF benefits.
