The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 authorized the Reimbursement Transportation Cost Payment Program for Geographically Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers (RTCP) to provide assistance to geographically disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. The program reimburses producers for a portion of the transportation cost for transporting their agricultural commodity, or inputs used to produce an agricultural commodity.
