Sign-up now available for USDA’s pop-up port cargo storage facilities

Ag companies can now submit their applications for the USDA’s Commodity Container Assistance Program.

The pop-up port cargo storage facilities are located in Oakland and Seattle. Zach Ducheneaux with the Farm Service Agency tells us more about it.

“We’re gonna provide $125 per container payment to help reimburse ag product owners to get the logistics worked out of getting their products into these containers. We’re also gonna offer payments of $200 per container for dry containers and $400 per container for refrigerated shipping containers.”

Applications for the pilot program can be sent to FSA’s national office.
