The Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996 required the establishment
of a Chief Information Officer (CIO) for all major Federal
agencies. The Act requires USDA to maximize the value of
information technology acquisitions to improve the efficiency
and effectiveness of USDA programs. To meet the intent of
the law and to provide a Departmental focus for information
resources management issues, Secretary’s Memorandum
1030–30, dated August 8, 1996, established the Office of the
Chief Information Officer (OCIO).
The CIO serves as the primary advisor to the Secretary
and Mission Area Heads in these areas. OCIO provides leadership for the Department’s information and information technology (IT) management activities in support of USDA’s program delivery.
OCIO is leading USDA’s E-Government efforts, in coordination with the Presidential E-Government Initiatives, to transform the Department’s delivery of information, programs, and
services using E-Government channels. OCIO is designing the
Department’s Enterprise Architecture to efficiently support
USDA’s move towards E-Government by leveraging economies-of-scale to acquire and share data and supporting IT
applications and infrastructure. OCIO is strengthening
USDA’s Computer Security Program to mitigate threats to
USDA’s information and IT assets and support the Department’s Homeland Security efforts. OCIO continues to facilitate the USDA IT Capital Planning and Control investment
review process by providing guidance and support to the Department’s Executive IT Investment Review Board, which approves all major technology investments to ensure they economically and effectively support program delivery.
Funded through the USDA Working Capital Fund, OCIO
provides automated data processing (ADP) and wide-area telecommunications services to all USDA agencies through the
National Information Technology Center and the Telecommunications Services and Operations organization, with
locations in Ft. Collins, Colorado, Kansas City, Missouri, and
Washington, D.C.
OCIO also has direct management and service responsibility for the IT component of the Service Center Agencies’
computing and telecommunications infrastructure. This includes the implementation of a common technology infrastructure to replace the outdated and stove-piped systems supporting the Farm Service Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Rural Development.

The Department of Agriculture Reorganization Act of 1994
requires the Secretary of Agriculture to procure and use computer systems in a manner that enhances efficiency, productivity, and client services, and that promotes computer information sharing among agencies of the Department. The
USDA Service Center Modernization Initiative (SCMI) has
been working to restructure county field offices, modernize
and integrate business approaches and replace the current
stove-piped and aging information systems with a modern
common computing environment (CCE) that optimizes information sharing, customer service, and staff efficiencies. The
funds requested under this account would fund essential capital investments needed to implement the modernization plan.
Economies of scale in the procurement and management of
information technology systems present compelling arguments
for coordinating information technology investments. Without
these investments, the Department’s ability to provide timely
and efficient services will continue to erode and the costs
of maintaining the separate, aging systems will increase. A
reorganization that combines the information technology (IT)
staffs of the SCA into one IT organization with OCIO went
into effect on November 28, 2004. The new organization, the
Information Technology Services (ITS), replaces a network
of cross-agency teams used to co-ordinate IT infrastructure
investment within the SCA and allows for unified management of the IT infrastructure. The ITS delivers the following
classes of technology services: Acquisition and Asset Management, Application Development and Deployment, Customer
Support and End User Computing, Data Utility, Hosting, Security, Telecommunications and Web Services. Service Level
Agreements (SLAs) that specify performance metrics will be
negotiated with the SCA for each class of service.

Agricultural estimates.—The Service provides the official
National and State estimates of acreage, yield, and production
of crops, stocks, and value of farm commodities, and numbers
of inventory values of livestock items. Data on approximately
120 crops and 45 livestock products are covered in over 400
reports issued each year. Detailed data are also collected on
agricultural chemical use, labor, and expenditures. In addition, the Census of Agriculture is conducted every five years
which provides comprehensive data on the Nation’s agricultural industry down to the county level.
The work under this activity is conducted through 46 field
offices serving the 50 States and Puerto Rico; most of these
offices are operated as joint State and Federal services. Cooperative arrangements with State agencies provide additional
State and county data. The 2007 program includes funding
to continue restoration and modernization of the Agricultural
Estimates program. This initiative is designed to strengthen
the quality of published data.
Census of Agriculture.—The Census of Agriculture is conducted every five years. A proposed increase of $7.25 million
due to cyclical activities will be used to collect data to measure coverage of the census mail list, prepare census mail
packages, and prepare for data collection activities to occur
in FY 2008.
Miscellaneous funds received from local organizations, commodity groups, and others are available for dissemination
of reports and for survey work conducted under cooperative
agreements (7 U.S.C. 450b, 450h, 3318b).

The Agricultural Research Service conducts research to provide the means for a safer, more economical supply of agricultural products for the Nation and to provide producers with
technologies to competitively supply these products. Technology needs of regulatory, technical assistance and education
agencies of USDA and other Federal agencies are supported
through ARS research. The Service uses coordinated, interdisciplinary approaches to perform basic and applied research
on soil and water conservation, plant and animal sciences,
commodity conversion and delivery, human nutrition, and integrated agricultural systems. In 2007, the Service proposes
increased emphases for critical research needs in agriculture,
such as: support for homeland security efforts to protect the
Nation’s food supply (emerging and exotic diseases of plants
and animals, food safety, and the national plant disease recovery system); bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and
chronic wasting disease (CWD); air and water quality;
biobased
products
and
bioenergy;
sequencing
and
bioinformatics; obesity; genetic resources; controlling invasive
species; climate change; soybean and wheat stem rust; avian
influenza; foot and mouth disease; genomics; agricultural information services and cyber security. Consistent with the
2006 Budget, the 2007 Budget also proposes to eliminate
funding for unrequested Congressional earmarks added to the
Service since 2001. In 2005, the Service submitted 88 new
patent applications, participated in 55 new Cooperative research and development agreements (CRADAs), licensed 33
new products, and developed 65 new plant varieties to release
to industry for further development and marketing.
Product Quality/Value Added.—New products, new uses,
and value-added processes that appeal to consumers will create additional demand-driven need for agricultural production, thus providing more opportunities for agricultural producers and businesses. Biobased technologies promise new
opportunities for energy, industrial and pharmacological markets for U.S. farmers. New markets are emerging for environmental activities and products that mitigate environmental
concerns.
Livestock Production.—Intense competition in global markets emphasizes the need for American agriculture to pursue
and market higher value animal products. Research must
respond to consumer demands for healthier and safer products to ensure a sustainable and profitable livestock production system that produces affordable value-added food, fiber,
and industrial products. These superior technologies must effectively differentiate U.S. agricultural products from competing sources and provide customers with value-added processes that enhance product quality.
Crop Production.—ARS will develop and disseminate
science-based information to provide U.S. crop producers with
increased flexibility to effectively manage unforeseen risks
that impact profitability and product quality. U.S. agricultural
production and marketability is constantly influenced by factors such as unpredictable weather, disease and pest outbreaks, and changing consumer demands. Use of genetically
diverse germplasm resource collections and best management
practices require research that helps improve production efficiency and productivity through the development of pest resistant varieties and information to facilitate decision-making.
Food Safety.—For the Nation to have affordable and safe
food, the food system must be protected at each step from

production to consumption. The production and distribution
system for food in the United States has been a diverse,
extensive, and easily accessible system. This open system is
vulnerable to the introduction of pathogens and toxins
through natural processes, global commerce, and by intentional means. Thus, the food supply must be protected during
production, processing, and preparation from pathogens, toxins, and chemical contamination that cause disease in humans.
Livestock Protection.—Economic sustainability of livestock
production systems in both domestic and global markets is
limited by the disease status of the animals. Many factors
affect the likelihood of diseases in livestock. These include
globalization and international commerce, presence of pathogen vectors, industrialization of agriculture, availability of
vaccines and protection systems, movements of animals during production, continued emergence of new diseases, genetic
resistance, and the availability of vaccines and protection systems, movements of animals during production, continued
emergence of new disease, genetic resistance, and the availability of trained animal health specialists. Livestock production systems are in transition from open and extensive systems to more closely monitored intensive management systems which remain vulnerable to accidental and intentional
exposure to pathogens. Many of these pathogens are zoonotic
and impact public health.
Crop Protection.—Economic sustainability of agricultural
crop production in both domestic and global markets is limited by the disease status of crops. Many factors affect the
likelihood of diseases to crops including, globalization and
international commerce, presence of pathogen vectors, availability of protection systems, continued emergence of new disease, genetic resistance of crops, and the availability of
trained plant health specialists. Crop systems have limited
diversity and will remain extensive and thereby more vulnerable to intentional exposure to pathogens.
Human Nutrition.—Improving the Nation’s health requires
enhancing the quality of the American diet. The United States
is experiencing an obesity epidemic resulting from multifaceted causes including a ‘‘more is better’’ mindset, a sedentary lifestyle, and the selection of readily available high
calorie foods. In addition, four of the top ten causes of death
in the U.S.—cardiovascular disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes—are associated with the quality of our diets—diets too
high in calories, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, or too
low in fiber. Americans want fresh foods that taste good,
are convenient to prepare and consume, and yet, offer nutrition and health benefits. Building a strong connection between agriculture and human health is an important step
to providing a nutritionally enhanced food supply. Promoting
healthier food choices and educating Americans to balance
caloric intake with sufficient daily physical activity are vital
steps to preventing obesity and decreasing risk for chronic
disease.
Environmental Stewardship.—Agriculture relies on a natural resource base whose sustainability depends on sound,
science-based production practices. The management of our
renewable resources often seems to be a continuous balancing
of conflicting and competing goals and concerns. While this
is often the case, particularly in the short-term, longer-term
management strategies combined with adequate knowledge
of the complex natural systems can yield maximum sustainable benefits from our resources that can satisfy most competing concerns. The outcome will be technology and practices
that will mitigate the adverse impact of agriculture on the
environment, moderate the build up of green house gasses
that may contribute to climate change, and remove the necessity of farming environmentally sensitive marginal lands.
Library and Information Services.—Timely, relevant information is an essential raw material for the research process

as well as for effective policy development and decision-making. Targeted information services are also required to support specialized USDA audiences such as inspectors, regulators, nutritionists, and others, as well as their peers, customers and stakeholders nationwide. The general public requires information on a very broad set of agriculture-related
topics, ranging from small business development to gardening
to nutrition to food safety to farming to textiles to statistics
and beyond. Also, the permanent preservation of USDAs and
the Nation’s agricultural intellectual heritage is a key national responsibility. The National Agricultural Library (NAL)
is mandated to fulfill these roles and is a national resource
for all users of agricultural information. NAL’s work in collecting, preserving and ensuring access to agricultural information is fundamental to the continued wellbeing and growth
of U.S. agriculture, and the development of food supplies for
the nation and world.
Repair and maintenance of facilities.—Funds are used to
restore, upgrade, and maintain Federal facilities to meet
OSHA and EPA requirements, provide suitable workspace for
in-house research programs, and to retrofit existing structures
for better energy utilization.
Collaborative Research Program.—Funds from the U.S.
Agency for International Development (AID), allow USDA to
provide short-term scientific exchanges to the New Independent States of the former Soviet Union (NIS), in developing a market-based agricultural system necessary to meet
the food needs of their populations and to develop and
strengthen trade linkages between their countries and related
agribusiness and agricultural enterprise in the U.S.
Reimbursements.—Agricultural Research Service performs
program research activities and services for other USDA, Federal, and non-Federal agencies. These activities and services
are paid for on a reimbursable basis.

Under the Integrated Activities account, research, education
and/or extension grants are awarded for competitive and noncompetitive programs. In 2007, the Budget proposes that Section 406 activities, formerly supported under the Integrated
account, be supported within the Research and Education
account. These activities will be funded at $42.3 million, but
the grants will be administered through the National Research Initiative (NRI). This will allow greater flexibility and
responsiveness to changing needs in these targeted activities.
Critical issues program.—Funds are proposed to develop
early intervention strategies to prevent, manage or eradicate
new and emerging diseases, both plant and animal, which
would prevent loss of revenue to growers or producers.
Regional rural development centers.—Funding supports activities that pursue a holistic development strategy that tailors programming to meet regional and local needs and addresses areas of opportunity arising from a consumer-driven
agricultural economy.
Asian Soybean Rust.—Funding supports the development
of a pest risk management tool for Asian soybean rust and
other pathogens of legumes. Development of the risk management system will provide stakeholders with effective decision
support for managing pests and diseases of legumes crops,
particularly soybean rust.
Food and agriculture defense initiative (homeland security).—The program provides support to an unified network
of public agricultural institutions to identify and respond to
high risk biological pathogens in the food and agricultural
system. The 2007 Budget includes an increase to enhance
agricultural defense. Additional funding for these laboratories
is included in the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service participates in a nationwide system of agricultural research and education program planning and coordination between State institutions and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It assists in maintaining cooperation among the State
institutions, and between the State institutions and their Federal research partners. The agency administers grants and
payments to State institutions to supplement State and local
funding for agricultural research and higher education.
Payments under the Hatch Act.—Funds under the Hatch
Act are allocated on a formula basis to agricultural experiment stations of the land-grant colleges in the 50 States,

the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Micronesia, and Northern Mariana
Islands. The Budget proposes that beginning in 2007, an alternative approach be taken to expand and continuously recompete the Hatch Act multi-state awards by redirecting a
portion of the formula funds to nationally, competitively
awarded multi-state/multi-institutional projects.
Cooperative forestry research.—These funds are allocated by
formula to land-grant colleges or agricultural experiment stations in the 50 States, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands,
and other State-supported colleges and universities having
a forestry school and offering graduate training in forestry
sciences. The 2007 Budget proposes an alternative approach
under this program to redirect a portion of the formula funds
to nationally, competitively awarded multi-state/multi-institutional projects.
Animal health and disease research.—Funds, distributed by
formula, support livestock and poultry disease research in
approximately sixty-seven colleges of veterinary medicine and
in eligible agricultural experiment stations. No funding is
proposed for this program in FY 2007.
Payments to 1890 colleges and Tuskegee University and
West Virginia State University.—Funds allocated on a formula
basis support agricultural research and broaden the curricula
at the eighteen 1890 land-grant colleges, including Tuskegee
University and West Virginia State University.
Special research grants.—This program addresses research
areas of national interest. Funding is proposed for grant programs in IR–4 minor crop pest management, pest management alternatives, and sustainable agriculture. Funding is
also proposed for integrated pest management. Advances in
these areas will provide producers with safe, alternative pest
control methods resulting in more farmers increasing the
number of acres on which Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
methods are used. Funding proposed for IR–4 minor crop
pest management and minor use animal drugs will address
the growing need for registration of safe pesticides and drugs
for minor crops and animals and lead to reduced levels of
chemical and drug residues in food products by half. These
pest management programs will be coordinated to address
Food Quality and Protection Act issues. The IR–4 and IPM
programs are contained under improved pest control funding.
Improved pest control also includes Pest Management Alternatives, and Expert IPM Decision Support System Programs.
A grant program for global change is proposed for research
at universities as part of a coordinated Federal initiative.
Funding is also proposed for the National Biological Impact
Assessment Program, and aquaculture centers. The 2007
Budget eliminates funding for unrequested earmarks.
National research initiative competitive grants.—Funding is
being proposed for the National Research Initiative (NRI).
Research scientists throughout the U.S. scientific community
compete for funding under this program. The performance
goal has been to attract the widest possible involvement of
U.S. scientists in agricultural research to increase the knowledge base related to U.S. agriculture, food, and the environment and maintain world leadership in agricultural science
and engineering. NRI funding has resulted in increased participation by universities which are not traditionally considered agricultural schools and of highly skilled researchers
in projects addressing agricultural issues. The outcomes include the efficient communication of research results to scientific, engineering, and community user groups. These grants
support research in plants and animals; natural resources
and the environment; nutrition, food safety, and health; markets, trade, and rural development; and processing for adding
value or developing new products. In 2007, the Budget proVerDate Aug 31 2005

poses that Section 406 activities, formerly supported under
the Integrated account, be supported within the Research and
Education account and administered under the NRI.
1994 Institutions Research.—Funding is proposed to continue the competitive research grants program to build the
research capacity at the thirty-three 1994 institutions by supporting agricultural research activities that address tribal,
national and multistate priorities.
Federal administration.—A coordinating and review staff
assists in maintaining cooperation within and among the
States, and between the States and their Federal research
partners. This staff also administers research and education
grants and payments to States. Federal administration is
funded from a combination of program set-asides from formula and grant programs and from direct appropriation for
administration.
Higher education.—Funding is proposed for graduate fellowships grants, competitive challenge grants, Hispanic-serving
institutions education grants program, and a multicultural
scholars program. Funding is also proposed for Native American institutions, Alaska Native-serving and Native Hawaiianserving Institutions, Secondary Agriculture Education and 2year Post-secondary and Resident Instruction Grants for Insular Areas programs. These programs enable universities to
broaden their curricula; increase faculty development; student
research projects; and the number of new scholars recruited
in the food and agricultural sciences. In addition, an increased
number of graduate students, including minority graduate
students, will be enrolled in the agricultural sciences. Funding is also proposed for a capacity building program at the
1890 institutions as part of the USDA initiative to strengthen
these institutions through a broadening of curricula, increased
faculty development and student research projects. Funding
is proposed in the 2007 Budget for a Higher Education
Agrosecurity Program to provide educational and professional
development for personnel in securing the Nation’s agriculture and food supply.
Reimbursable program.—Funds support basic and applied
agriculture research and activities performed for other USDA,
Federal, and non-Federal agencies.
Native American Institutions Endowment Fund.—This program provides for an endowment for the 1994 land-grant institutions (33 Tribally controlled colleges) to strengthen the
infrastructure of these institutions and develop Indian expertise for the food and agricultural sciences and businesses and
their own communities. At the termination of each fiscal year,
the Secretary shall withdraw the income from the endowment
fund for the fiscal year, and after making adjustments for
the cost of administering the fund, distribute the adjusted
income on a formula basis to the 1994 land-grant institutions.

The Cooperative Extension System, a national educational
network, is a dynamic organization pledged to meeting the
country’s needs for research-based educational programs that
will enable people to make practical decisions to improve their
lives. To accomplish its mission, the Cooperative Extension
System adjusts programs to meet the shifting needs and priorities of the people it serves.
The nonformal educational network combines the expertise
and resources of Federal, State, and local partners. The partners in this unique System are: (a) The Cooperative State
Research, Education, and Extension Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture; (b) Extension professionals at landgrant universities throughout the United States and its territories; and (c) Extension professionals in nearly all of the
Nation’s 3,150 counties. Thousands of paraprofessionals and
nearly 3 million volunteers support this partnership and magnify its impact. Strong linkages with both public and private
external groups are also crucial to the Cooperative Extension
System’s strength and vitality.
Programs supported with Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) legislated formula funds, are the major educational efforts central
to the mission of the System and common to most Extension
units. These programs are the foundation of the Extension
organization and partnership that are intended to increase
the number of community-based projects, families, and individuals reached to disseminate research findings as widely
and quickly as possible. The use of electronic mail, satellite
transmission of courses, and computer-assisted instruction are
encouraged to communicate ideas.
Extension resources are provided to the States by these
formula funds and competitively-awarded programs such as
sustainable agriculture. Smith-Lever 3(b) and (c) funds and
payments to the 1890 colleges and Tuskegee University and
West Virginia State University provide funds to support the
Extension’s infrastructure.
Funds for designated programs, funded by Smith-Lever 3(d)
such as Youth-At-Risk and Expanded Food and Nutrition
Education Program (EFNEP), provide support for the Cooperative Extension System to address identified priority issues.
In 2007, funding has been requested for the Expanded Food
and Nutrition Education Program, pest management, children, youth and families at risk, a youth farm safety education and certification pilot project, extension services on
Indian reservations, sustainable agriculture, new technologies
for Ag Extension, Renewable Resources Extension Act, 1994
(Native American) institutions, and 1890 colleges and
Tuskegee University and West Virginia State University facilities.

The major objectives of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) are to protect the health and value
of American agriculture and natural resources against a variety of threats. To achieve this mission, APHIS has developed
a protection system that is based on a strategic premise that
safeguarding the health of animals, plants, and ecosystems
makes possible safe agricultural trade and reduces losses to
agricultural and natural resources. This mission is carried
out under the five major areas of activity, as follows:
Pest and disease exclusion.—The Agency develops protocols
for trade and travel to prevent the entry of plant or animal
pests and diseases into the United States and conducts quarantines and treatments of regulated products. APHIS develops and conducts preclearance programs to ensure that agricultural products destined for U.S. ports-of-entry do not
present a risk to U.S. agriculture. APHIS engages in cooperative programs in foreign countries to control pests of imminent concern to the United States. APHIS also certifies plants
and plant products for export and regulates imports and exports of designated endangered plant species. The 2007 Budget proposes substantial increases to enhance overseas surveillance and eradication efforts such as the Mediterranean Fruit
Fly, Foot-and-Mouth Disease, and Screwworm and to identify
exotic animal diseases more effectively.
Plant and animal health monitoring.—The Agency conducts
programs to assess animal and plant health and to detect
endemic and exotic diseases and pests. The plant and animal
health monitoring programs are primarily cooperative efforts
of the Federal and State governments, and industry. The
Agency also carries out surveys in cooperation with the States
to detect harmful plant and animal pests and diseases and
to determine if there is a need for pest eradication programs.
The 2007 Budget includes significant increases in monitoring
programs to enhance agricultural defense. The request inVerDate Aug 31 2005

cludes $56,730,000 for an early detection system and preparedness plan for highly pathogenic avian influenza.
Pest and disease management programs.—The Agency carries out programs to control and eradicate infestations and
animal diseases that threaten the United States; to reduce
agricultural losses caused by predatory animals, birds, and
rodents; to provide technical assistance to States, counties,
farmer or rancher groups, and foundations; and to ensure
compliance with interstate movement and disease control regulations. Interstate shipments of plants, livestock, and related
materials are monitored and regulated to prevent the spread
of disease. APHIS protects agriculture from detrimental animal predators through identification, demonstration, and application of the most appropriate methods of control. The
Budget implements a consistent set of cost-share criteria
among Federal and non-Federal partners to respond to a
plant and animal infestation. In addition, the 2007 Budget
includes increases related to diseases such as citrus canker,
emerald ash borer, low pathogenic avian influenza, sudden
oak death and tuberculosis.
Animal care.—The Agency conducts regulatory activities
that ensure the humane care and handling of animals used
in research, exhibition, or the wholesale pet trade. The Agency is also responsible for administering the Horse Protection
Act, which prohibits the showing, selling, or exhibition of
sore horses. The request includes an additional $2 million
to fund activities related to birds, rats and mice.
Scientific and technical services.—APHIS develops methods
to control animals and pests that are detrimental to agriculture, other wildlife, and public safety. The agency regulates
genetic research to guard against the release of potentially
harmful organisms into the environment. APHIS also conducts veterinary diagnostic laboratory activities and biologic
regulatory enforcement to ensure that the products developed
for combatting disease are potent, safe, and pure. It also
provides and directs technology development in coordination
with other groups in APHIS to support programs of the Agency and its cooperators at the State, national, and international
levels. The 2007 Budget includes funding to enhance agricultural defense and for biotech regulatory services.
The 2007 Budget also proposes significant increases to continue enhanced biosecurity efforts and laboratory network activities initially implemented with 2002 emergency supplemental funds in response to the September 11, 2001, terrorist
attacks.
Funding to support inspections of people, cargo and transport from overseas related to agricultural products and a portion of funds for the Plum Island Animal Disease Center
is included in the budget of the Department of Homeland
Security.

The primary objectives of the Food Safety and Inspection
Service (FSIS) are to ensure that meat, poultry, shell egg,
and egg products are wholesome, unadulterated, and properly
labeled and packaged, as required by the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Products Inspection Act, and the
Egg Products Inspection Act. Providing adequate resources
for Federal food safety agencies is a priority of the Administration, and the 2007 Budget proposes a $34 million increase
for inspection of meat, poultry, shell egg and egg products.
This increase will cover pay cost increases for Federal and
State inspection programs, and initiatives for: food and agriculture defense, risk-based inspection, and information technology.

The Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) establishes official United States standards for
grain, promotes the uniform application thereof by official
inspection personnel, provides for an official inspection system
for grain, and regulates the weighing and certification of the
weight of grain shipped in interstate or foreign commerce
as authorized by the U.S. Grain Standards Act (USGSA),
as amended, and the regulations thereof, and the Agricultural
Marketing Act of 1946 (AMA).
Standardization activities include establishing and updating
U.S. grain standards, research, and developing and improving
methods to ensure the accurate and uniform application of
the standards.
The compliance activities ensure the accurate and uniform
application of the USGSA and applicable provisions of the
AMA. The compliance program functions include: (1) evaluating alleged violations and initiating preliminary investigations; (2) initiating the implementation of corrective actions;
(3) conducting management and technical reviews; (4) administering the designations and delegations of State and private
agencies to perform official functions and monitoring the performance of the agencies; (5) identifying and, where appropriate, waiving and monitoring conflicts of interest; (6) licensing personnel of delegated States and designated agencies;
(7) registering persons/firms engaged in the business of buying grain for sale in foreign commerce, and in the business
of handling, weighing, or transporting of grain for sale in
foreign commerce; (8) responding to audits of Grain Inspection
programs; and (9) reviewing and, when appropriate, approving official agencies’ fee schedules.
The Office of International Affairs briefs foreign buyers,
assesses foreign inspection and weighing techniques, and responds to foreign quality and quantity complaints.
An advisory committee consisting of members from the
grain industry exists to advise the Agency regarding efficient
and economical implementation of the USGSA.
The Grain Quality Improvement Act of 1986 was enacted
on November 10, 1986, to improve the quality of U.S. grain
by prohibiting the introduction and reintroduction of dockage
and foreign material to grain.
The goal of the Packers and Stockyards program is to ensure the integrity of the livestock, meat, and poultry markets
and the marketplace in order to protect producers against
unfair, deceptive, or discriminatory practices as well as those
that are predatory or monopolistic in nature. Consumers and
members of the livestock, poultry, and meat industries are
also protected against unfair business practices in the marketing of livestock, meat and poultry, and from restrictions
on competition which could unduly affect prices. The Agency
also carries out the Secretary’s responsibilities under Section
1324 of the Food Security Act of 1985 covering ‘‘central filing
systems’’ established by States for pre-notification of security
interests against farm products.

The Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) provides a uniform system for the inspection
and weighing of grain. Services provided under this system
are financed through a fee supported revolving fund. This
authority has been extended through September 2015.
Fee supported programs include direct services, supervision
activities and administrative functions. Direct services include
official grain inspection and weighing by GIPSA employees
at certain export ports as well as the inspection of U.S. grain
shipped through Canada. The Agency supervises the inspection and weighing activities performed by its own employees.
The Agency also oversees the inspection and weighing of grain
performed by employees of 6 delegated States and 51 designated State and private agencies. The Agency provides an
appeal service of original grain inspections and a registration
system for grain exporting firms. Through support from the
Association of American Railroads and user fees, GIPSA conducts a railroad track scale testing program. In addition, the
agency provides grading services, on request, for rice and
grain related products under the authority of the Agricultural
Marketing Act of 1946 (AMA).

Market protection and promotion.—This program consists
of: (1) the research and promotion programs which are designed to improve the competitive position and expand markets for cotton, eggs and egg products, honey, pork, beef,
dairy products, potatoes, watermelons, mushrooms, soybeans,
fluid milk, popcorn, blueberries, avocados, lamb, mangos and
peanuts; (2) the Federal Seed Act; and (3) the administration
of the Capper-Volstead Act and the Agricultural Fair Practices Act.
The pesticide recordkeeping program monitors compliance
of private certified applicators with Federal regulations requiring them to keep records of restricted pesticides used
in agricultural production.
The pesticide data program develops comprehensive, statistically defensible information on pesticide residues in food
to improve government dietary risk procedures.
Federal seed inspectors conduct tests on seed samples to
help ensure truthful labeling of agricultural and vegetable
seeds sold in interstate commerce.
The Capper-Volstead Act and the Agricultural Fair Practices Act protect producers against discriminatory practices
by handlers, permit producers to engage in cooperative efforts,
and ensure that such cooperatives do not engage in practices
that monopolize or restrain trade.
The national organic program certifies that organically produced food products meet national standards.

Agricultural Marketing Service activities assist producers
and handlers of agricultural commodities by providing a variety of marketing services. These services continue to become
more complex as the volume of agricultural commodities increases, as a greater number of new processed commodities
are developed, and as the agricultural market structure undergoes extensive changes. Marketing changes include increased concentration in food retailing, direct buying, decentralization of processing, growth of interregional competition,
vertical integration, and contract farming.
The individual Marketing Services activities include:
Market news service.—The market news program provides
the agricultural community with information pertaining to
the movement of agricultural products. This nationwide service provides daily reports on the supply, demand, and price
of over 700 commodities on domestic and foreign markets.
Inspection, grading and standardization.—Nationally uniform standards of quality for agricultural products are estabVerDate Aug 31 2005

License fees are deposited in this special fund and are
used to meet the costs of administering the Perishable Agricultural Commodities and the Produce Agency Acts (7 U.S.C.
491–497, 499a–499s).
The Acts are intended to ensure equitable treatment to
farmers and others in the marketing of fresh and frozen fruits
and vegetables. Commission merchants, dealers, and brokers
handling these products in interstate and foreign commerce
are licensed. Complaints of violations are investigated and
violations dealt with by (a) informal agreements between the
two parties, (b) formal decisions involving payment of reparation awards, and/or (c) suspension or revocation of license
and/or publication of the facts. Beginning October 1, 1994,
an additional fee was instituted for the filing of formal and
informal complaints of violations of the Act. The November
1995 amendments to the Perishable Agricultural Commodities
Act: (1) increased the license fee and phased out fees for
wholesale grocers and retailers by 1999; (2) provided permanent authority to the Secretary of Agriculture to set license
and reparation complaint filing fees; and (3) repealed the
25 percent maximum funding reserve cap.
A 1984 amendment to the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act requires traders to have trust assets on hand to
meet their obligations to fruit and vegetable suppliers. To
preserve their trust and establish their rights ahead of other
creditors, unpaid suppliers file notice with both the Department and their debtors that payment is due.

Unobligated balance carried forward, end of year

In FY 2007, the Administration is proposing fees to offset
the majority of mandatory Section 32 funding for oversight
of Marketing Agreements and Orders (MA&O). Because of
delays associated with collections and reimbursements, the
fees are not anticipated to cover the full cost of administrative
oversight activity in the first year. As a result, a small portion
of mandatory funding is necessary and is reflected by the
modified limitation on administrative funding. Elsewhere receipts collected will be made available to the Marketing Service account to fund the balance of this activity.
Under section 32 of the Act of August 24, 1935, as amended
(7 U.S.C. 612c), an amount equal to 30 percent of customs
receipts collected during each calendar year is automatically
appropriated for expanding outlets for perishable, non-price
supported commodities. An amount equal to 30 percent of
receipts collected on fishery products is transferred to the
Department of Commerce. A portion of retained funds are
used to purchase commodities that are distributed to schools
as part of the child nutrition program entitlements. Funds
are also transferred to the Food and Nutrition Service and
are used to purchase commodities under section 6 of the National School Lunch Act and other authorities specified in
the child nutrition appropriation. If unforeseen commodity
surpluses develop, remaining unobligated balances may be
authorized to stabilize market conditions through surplus removal. Surplus commodities diverted from normal channels
of commerce are distributed to nutrition assistance programs.

The Secretary of Agriculture is authorized by the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937, as amended—under
certain conditions—to issue Federal milk marketing orders
establishing minimum prices which handlers are required to
pay for milk purchased from producers. The Secretary has
reduced the number of milk marketing orders from 31 to
10, consistent with the 1996 Farm Bill authorities.
Market administrators are appointed by the Secretary and
are responsible for carrying out the terms of specific marketing orders. Their operating expenses, partly financed by
assessments on regulated handlers and partly by deductions
from producers, are reported in these schedules. These nonFederal funds are collected locally, deposited in local banks,
and disbursed directly by the market administrator.
Expenses of local offices are met from an administrative
fund and a marketing service fund, which are prescribed in
each order. The administrative fund is derived from prorated
handler assessments. The marketing service fund of the individual order disseminates market information to producers
who are not members of a qualified cooperative. It also provides for the verification of the weights, sampling, and testing
of milk from these producers. The cost of these services is
borne by such producers.
The maximum rates for administrative assessment and for
marketing services are set forth in each order and adjustments below these rates are made from time to time upon
recommendations by the market administrator and upon approval of the Agricultural Marketing Service to provide reserves at about a 6-month operating level. Upon termination
of any order, the statute provides for distributing the proceeds
from net assets pro rata to contributing handlers or producers, as the case may be.

This appropriation provides funding for the administrative
and operating expenses of the Risk Management Agency
(RMA). From this appropriations it is expected that RMA
will fund data mining. The Agricultural Risk Protection Act
(ARPA) of 2000 significantly enhanced RMA’s role in protecting the integrity of the Federal Crop Insurance program
for farmers. ARPA imposed new regulatory responsibilities
and expanded the scope of program compliance and monitoring activities. Accordingly, it impacted on the amount and
type of information RMA collects. The budget requests additional funding and staffing to fully implement these responsibilities.
The Federal Crop Insurance program is delivered through
private insurance companies. Certain administrative expenses
incurred by the companies are reimbursed through mandatory
funding that is reflected in the account for the Federal Crop
Insurance Fund.

The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC), a whollyowned government corporation, provides multi-peril and catastrophic crop insurance protection against losses from unavoidable natural events. The Federal Crop Insurance Reform
Act of 1994 (Reform Act) and the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996 (1996 Act) brought many
changes to the program. The crop insurance program is an
integral part of the broad-based safety net and includes programs involving revenue insurance, and education in the use
of futures markets to manage risks.
Commercial insurance companies deliver crop insurance
policies to producers in all states. For producers who obtain
Catastrophic Crop Insurance (CAT), which compensates the
farmer for losses up to 50 percent of the individual’s average
yield at 55 percent of the expected market price, the premium
is entirely subsidized. The cost to the producer for this type
of coverage is an annual administrative fee of $100 per crop
per county.
Additional coverage is available to producers who wish to
insure crops above the 50 percent coverage level/55 percent
price level. Policyholders can elect to be paid up to 100 percent of the market price established by FCIC for each unit
of production their actual yield is less than the individual
yield guarantee. Premium rates for additional coverage depend on the level of protection selected and vary from crop
to crop and county to county. Producers are assessed a fee
of $30 per crop, per county, in addition to a share of the
premium. The additional levels of insurance coverage are
more attractive to farmers due to availability of optional
units, other policy provisions not available with CAT coverage, and the ability to obtain a level of protection that
permits them to use crop insurance as loan collateral and
to achieve greater financial security.
Revenue protection for all products is provided by extending
traditional multi-peril crop insurance protection, based on actual production history, to include price variability. Revenue
insurance helps to ensure a certain level of annual income.
FCIC is also piloting an Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) program, which is designed to insure a portion of a producer’s
gross revenue based on their Schedule F Farm and income
tax reports.
The Adjusted Gross Revenue-Lite (AGR-Lite) insurance
plan was approved in late 2002 and offered for sale in 2003.
This product was submitted to FCIC through Section 508(h)
of the Act. For 2006, AGR-Lite covers whole farm revenue
up to $1 million, including revenue from animals and animal
products. AGR-Lite covers the adjusted gross revenue from
the whole farm based on five years of tax forms and a farm
plan. AGR-Lite initially began as a pilot in Pennsylvania and
was expanded to include 15 additional States.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

During 2005, RMA continued as one of its highest priorities
the contracted development of new insurance programs for
pasture, rangeland and forage. In addition, RMA awarded
contracts to evaluate and pursue alternatives for addressing
situations of declining actual production history yields due
to successive years of yield loss. Also, RMA awarded 20 research and development partnership agreements totaling over
$8 million to develop financial and risk management decision
support tools, and for funding technical and scientific innovations for better disease management and to increase revenues
in both crop and livestock programs. Funding of over $6 million was made to support enhancements to the national
drought monitor to make producers aware of risk management tools and their role in decision-making at the farm
level, and to develop GIS based tools and applications for
producer use via a web-site interface. Additionally RMA funding of approximately $2.5 million provided producers with
a decision support tool for production practices to manage
soybean rust and to help in the establishment of sentinel
plots to assist in keeping the nation informed on the movement of the rust disease.
In crop year 2005, 246 million acres were insured, with
an estimated $3,950 million in total premium income, including $2,344 million in premium subsidy.
ARPA provided RMA with mandatory funding to implement
data mining and data warehousing to improve compliance
and integrity in the crop insurance program. It is estimated
that in its first year of operation, data mining prevented
nearly $94 million in improper payments and helped recover
nearly $35 million in improper indemnities. However, the authority to use mandatory funding for data mining expired
in 2005. The 2007 Budget includes $3.6 million to continue
data mining and data warehousing activities. These funds
are requested in the Administrative and Operating Account.
The 2007 Budget includes a proposal to implement a participation fee in the Federal crop insurance program. The
proposed participation fee would initially be used to fund
modernization of the existing information technology (IT) system and would supplement the annual appropriation provided
by Congress. Subsequently, the fee would be shifted to maintenance and would be expected to reduce the annual appropriation. The participation fee would be charged to insurance
companies participating in the Federal crop insurance program; based on a rate of about one-half cent per dollar of
premium sold, the fee is expected to generate an amount
not to exceed $15 million annually. In recent years, the Administration has included several proposals in the Budget
to modernize the IT system used by RMA to administer the
Federal crop insurance program. The existing IT system is
nearing the end of its useful life and recent years have seen
increases in ‘‘down-time’’ resulting from system failures. Over
the years, numerous changes have occurred in the Federal
crop insurance program; including, the development of revenue and livestock insurance which have greatly expanded
the program and taxed the IT system due to new requirements, such as daily pricing, which were not envisioned when
the existing IT system was designed. These new requirements
contribute to increased maintenance costs and limit RMA’s
ability to comply with Congressional mandates pertaining to
data reconciliation with the Farm Service Agency. Additionally, the 2007 Budget proposal would tie direct farm payments
to the purchase of crop insurance. This change will ensure
that all farmers growing the major commodity corps (e.g.
wheat, corn, soybeans, and cotton) will have insurance coverage, ensuring that a farmer’s revenue loss in a disaster
will not be greater than 50 percent. As part of this proposal,
the Administration includes changes to the Crop Insurance
program that will reduce the premium subsidies to the farmers as well as the subsidies in total to the participating insurance companies. These changes will allow farmers to become

more efficient in their risk management and companies to
deliver crop insurance in a more efficient manner. The government will also realize savings of $140 million beginning
in 2008 as a result of these efficiencies, and the need for
ad-hoc disaster payments will be reduced.

The Farm Service Agency (FSA) was established October
3, 1994, pursuant to the Federal Crop Insurance Reform and
Department of Agriculture Reorganization Act of 1994, P.L.
103–354. The Department of Agriculture Reorganization Act
of 1994 was amended on April 4, 1996, by the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996 (1996 Act), P.L.
104–127. The FSA administers a variety of activities, such
as farm income support programs through various loans and
payments; the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP); the
Emergency Conservation Program; the Hazardous Waste
Management Program; the Commodity Operation Programs
including the warehouse examination function; farm ownership, farm operating, emergency disaster, and other loan programs; price support programs for tobacco and peanuts; and
the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP),
which provides crop loss protection for growers of many crops
for which crop insurance is not available. The Agency also
assists in the administration of several conservation costshare programs financed by the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC), including the Grasslands Reserve Program (GRP).
In addition, FSA currently provides certain administrative
support services to the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS)
and to the Risk Management Agency (RMA).
This consolidated administrative expenses account includes
funds to cover expenses of programs administered by, and
functions assigned to, the Agency. The funds consist of a
direct appropriation, transfers from program loan accounts
under credit reform procedures, user fees, and advances and
reimbursements from other sources. This is a consolidated
account for administrative expenses of national, regional,
State, and county offices.
USDA’s FSA, Natural Resources Conservation Service
(NRCS), and Rural Development (RD) offices act as separate
franchises, with offices often located adjacent to each other.
Prior efforts to improve the efficiency of USDA’s county-based
offices have resulted in significant co-location, and introduction of new information technology to simplify customer transactions.
During 2003 FSA also began to consolidate loan servicing
functions such as billings and mass mailings and is in the
process of implementing an interactive voice response system
to handle routine information requests from borrowers. These
efforts will help improve customer service while also reducing
annual costs to the Government. However, the separate hierarchical structures at State, regional, and headquarter levels
are set in law, and this hinders further attempts to achieve
additional efficiencies.
Farm programs.—These programs provide an economic
safety net through farm income support to eligible producers,
cooperatives, and associations to help improve the economic
stability and viability of the agricultural sector and to ensure
the production of an adequate and reasonably priced supply
of food and fiber. Objectives of the Agency include providing
direct and counter-cyclical payments, providing marketing assistance loans and loan deficiency payments enabling recipients to continue farming operations without marketing their
product immediately after harvest, and providing a financial
assistance safety net to eligible producers when natural disasters result in a catastrophic loss of production or prevent

planting of noninsured crops, and timely approval of crop
prices, average yields, and payment factors for the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP).
Farm program activities include the following functions
dealing with the administration of programs carried out
through the farmer committee system of the FSA: (a) developing program regulations and procedures; (b) collecting and
compiling basic data for individual farms; (c) establishing individual farm allotments for farm planting history; (d) notifying producers of established allotments and farm planting
histories; (e) establishing individual farm allotments and determining farm marketing quotas for tobacco through 2005;
(f) conducting referendums and certifying results; (g) accepting farmer certifications and checking compliance for specific
purposes; (h) processing commodity loan documents and
issuing checks; (i) processing direct and counter-cyclical payments and issuing checks; (j) certifying payment eligibility
and monitoring payment limitations; and (k) processing farm
storage facility loans and issuing checks.
Conservation and environment.—These programs assist agricultural producers and landowners in achieving a high level
of stewardship of soil, water, air, and wildlife resources on
America’s farmland and ranches while protecting the human
and natural environment. Objectives of the Agency include
improving environmental quality, protecting natural resources, and enhancing habitat for fish and wildlife, including
threatened and endangered species, providing Emergency
Conservation Program funding for farmers and ranchers to
rehabilitate damaged farmland and for carrying out emergency conservation measures during periods of severe drought
or flooding, protecting the public health of communities
through implementation of the Hazardous Waste Management Program, and implementing administrative processes
and procedures for contracting, financial reporting, and other
financial operations. This activity includes: (a) processing producer requests for conservation cost-sharing and issuing conservation reserve rental payments; and (b) issuing checks for
other conservation programs.
Commodity operations.—This activity includes: (a) overall
management of CCC-owned commodities; (b) purchasing commodities; (c) donating commodities; (d) selling commodities;
(e) accounting for loans and commodities; and (f) commercial
warehouse activities, which include improving the effectiveness and efficiency of FSA’s commodity acquisition, procurement, storage, and distribution activities to support domestic
and international food assistance programs and administering
the U.S. Warehouse Act (USWA). The Agency provides for
the examination of warehouses licensed under the USWA and
non-licensed warehouses storing CCC-owned or pledged commodities. Examiners perform periodic examinations of the facilities and the warehouse records to ensure protection of
depositors against potential losses of the stored commodities
and to ensure compliance with the USWA and any CCC storage agreements.
Farm loans (reimbursable).—Provides for administering the
direct and guaranteed loan programs covered under the Agricultural Credit Insurance Fund (ACIF). Objectives of the
Agency include improving the economic viability of farmers
and ranchers, reducing losses in direct loan programs, responding to loan making and servicing requests, and maximizing financial and technical assistance to under-served
groups. Activities include reviewing applications, servicing the
loan portfolio, and providing technical assistance and guidance to borrowers. Funding for farm loan administrative expenses is transferred to this consolidated account from the
ACIF. Appropriations representing subsidy amounts necessary to support the individual program loan levels under
Federal Credit Reform are made to the ACIF account.
Other reimbursable activities.—FSA collects a fee or is reimbursed for performing a variety of services for other Federal

This grant program is authorized by Title V of the Agricultural Credit Act of 1987, P.L. 100–233, as amended. Originally designed to address agricultural credit disputes, the
program was expanded by the Federal Crop Insurance Reform
and Department of Agriculture Reorganization Act of 1994
(P.L. 103–354) to include other agricultural issues such as
wetland determinations, conservation compliance, rural water
loan programs, grazing on National Forest System lands, and
pesticide use. Grants are made to States whose agricultural
mediation programs have been certified by the Farm Service
Agency. A grant will not exceed 70 percent of the total fiscal

This program was terminated at the beginning of 1997 in
accordance with the Federal Agriculture Improvement and
Reform Act of 1996. The objectives of the Agricultural Conservation Program (ACP) were incorporated into the Environmental Quality Incentives Program which is funded by the
Commodity Credit Corporation and administered under the
lead of the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
The primary objective of the program was to conserve soil
and water resources. Along with annual agreements, cost
sharing was authorized for long-term agreements of 3–10
years. In 2005 a transfer of $824,125 in unobligated funds
was made to the USDA Working Capital Fund as authorized
in Section 705 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2005,
P.L. 108–447. Outlays to States in 2005 totaled $115 thousand.

The tree assistance program (TAP) was reauthorized by
the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 with
some modifications.
For 2004, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, P.L. 108–
199, appropriated $12.5 million for the program in southern
California. During the fiscal year, $4 million was obligated,
$6 million was transferred to the USDA Working Capital
Fund per Section 704 of P.L. 108–199, and the remaining
$2 million unobligated balance will expire at the end of FY
2009. No outlays were made during FY 2004 from funds obligated during the fiscal year.
For 2005 and 2006, no appropriation was provided for TAP.
However, during fiscal year 2005, $742,665 was paid to producers in Southern California from fiscal year 2004 obligations for losses due to wildfires.
No funding is requested for 2007.

The Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) was authorized by the Agricultural Credit Act of 1978 (16 U.S.C. 2201–

rangelands resulting from natural disasters.
The Emergency Hurricane Supplemental Appropriations
Act, 2005, P.L. 108–324, provided $150 million for ECP ($100
million in direct appropriation and $50 million transferred
from the Commodity Credit Corporation). These funds are
available until expended.
Under the 2005 program, cost-sharing and technical assistance were provided in 45 States to treat farmlands damaged

As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the direct loans obligated and loan guarantees
committed in 1992 and beyond (including credit sales of acquired property), as well as administrative expenses of this
program. The subsidy amounts are estimated on a present
value basis; the administrative expenses are estimated on
a cash basis.
Under the Dairy Indemnity Program (DIP), payments are
made to farmers and manufacturers of dairy products who
are directed to remove their milk or milk products from commercial markets because they contain residues of chemicals
that have been registered and approved by the Federal Government, other chemicals, nuclear radiation, or nuclear fallout. Indemnification may also be paid for cows producing
such milk.
In 2005, $349 thousand was paid to producers who filed
claims under the program.

The Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) was created to:
stabilize, support, and protect farm income and prices; help
maintain balanced and adequate supplies of agricultural commodities, their products, foods, feeds, and fibers; and help
in their orderly distribution.
The Corporation’s capital stock of $100 million is held by
the U.S. Treasury. Under present law, up to $30 billion may
be borrowed from the U.S. Treasury to finance operations.
Current, indefinite appropriation authority is requested to
cover all net realized losses. Appropriations to the Corporation
for net realized losses have no effect on budget authority,
as they are used to repay debt directly with the Treasury.
Budget assumptions.—The following general assumptions
form the basis for the Corporation’s 2006 and 2007 budget
estimates: (a) national income will rise both in 2006 and
2007 from the present level; (b) 2006 crop production will
increase from 2005 crop levels for some commodities; (c) generally, exports of agricultural commodities in 2007 are expected to be lower than 2006 levels; and (d) yields for the
2006 crops are based on recent averages adjusted for trends.
It is difficult to accurately forecast requirements for the
year ending September 30, 2007, since the projections are
subject to complex and unpredictable factors such as weather,
other factors which affect the volume of production of crops
not yet planted, feed and food needs here and overseas, and
available dollar exchange.
In 2003, USDA announced it had reserved 2 million Conservation Reserve Program acres for the continuous signup
program. Within this reserved amount, USDA will make a
special effort to help enhance wildlife habitat and sequester
carbon by setting aside 500 thousand acres for bottomland
hardwood tree planting. In 2004, USDA further enhanced
CRP by announcing the Northern Bobwhite Quail Initiative
and additional wetland restoration initiatives. Also in 2004,
the Administration announced its commitment to full enrollment of CRP and that USDA will offer early reenrollment
and extensions of expiring contracts. This activity, related
to the 28 million acres expiring between 2007 and 2010, is
scheduled to occur in FY 2006 and FY 2007. During 2005,
about 387 thousand acres were signed up for continuous practices in signup 30. Together with the 2 million acres already
enrolled, this maintains the 4-million-acre goal for continuous
signup.
The 2001 Appropriations Act authorized the Secretary to
enroll 500,000 acres during 2001 and 2002 for a Farmable
Wetlands Pilot Program and required that the acreage enrolled not reduce the continuous-signup or CREP acreage.
This authorization was expanded in the 2002 Farm Bill to
include 1 million acres and all States.
P.L. 108–498, signed into law December 23, 2004, provides
independent authority beginning October 1, 2004, for CRP
funds to be used for technical assistance.
Appropriations are made to reimburse the Corporation for
net realized losses sustained in carrying out its operations.
The 2002 Farm Bill provided a total of $176 billion for
payments to the farm sector, a 74 percent increase over the
assistance the previous Farm Bill would have provided in

the absence of any additional emergency assistance. Not all
of this assistance is appropriately targeted, and many of the
programs may need to be reformed as a result of any new
multilateral long-term trade agreements. Therefore, the Administration is proposing the following legislative changes to
reduce agricultural subsidies, promote more efficient production decisions, and extend expiring programs:
• Reducing the payment limit cap for individuals to
$250,000 for crop payments, including all types of marketing
loan gains, while removing the three-entity-rule.
• Reducing crop and dairy payments to farmers by 5 percent. Payments to farmers from all commodity programs (e.g.
marketing loans, direct and counter-cyclical payments) would
be calculated and payments would be reduced by 5 percent.
• The dairy price support program would be required to
minimize expenditures.
• A sugar marketing assessment is to be paid by sugar
processors on all processed sugar.
• A marketing assessment on milk would be required.
USDA has incorporated stochastic price and production variability into its 10-year budget baseline process starting with
the FY 2007 President’s Budget. For the 2006–2015 crops,
Commodity Credit Corporation outlay projections for countercyclical payments, marketing loan benefits, and milk income
loss contract payments are based on price probability distributions and flexibilities generated by the Economic Research
Service’s Food and Agricultural Policy Simulation model. This
approach was used for feed grains (corn, barley, sorghum,
oats), wheat, rice, upland cotton, soybeans, and dairy.

PROGRAMS OF THE CORPORATION

Price support, marketing assistance loans, and related stabilization programs.—The Corporation conducts programs to
support farm income and prices and stabilize the market for
agricultural commodities. Price support is provided to producers of agricultural commodities through loans, purchases,
payments, and other means. This is done mainly under the
Commodity Credit Corporation Charter Act, as amended, the
Agricultural Act of 1949 (the 1949 Act), as amended, and
the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (the
2002 Farm Bill).
Price support is mandatory for tobacco through 2004 and
dairy products. Marketing assistance loans are mandatory for
wheat, feed grains, oilseeds, upland cotton, peanuts, and rice.
Loans are also required to be made for sugar, honey, wool,
mohair, extra long staple cotton, and the pulse crops.
One method of providing support is loans to and purchases
from producers. With limited exceptions, loans made on commodities are nonrecourse. The commodities serve as collateral

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

for the loan and on maturity the producer may deliver or
forfeit such collateral to satisfy the loan obligation without
further payment.
Direct purchases may be made from processors as well as
producers, depending on the commodity involved. Also, special
purchases are made under various laws for the removal of
surpluses; for example, the Act of August 19, 1958, as amended, and section 416 of the Agricultural Act of 1949, as amended.
Direct Payments and Counter-Cyclical Payments. The 2002
Farm Bill established direct payments and counter-cyclical
payments for May 2002 through 2007. The eligible commodities for both direct payments and counter-cyclical payments
are wheat, corn, grain sorghum, barley, oats, upland cotton,
rice, soybeans, other oilseeds, and peanuts.
Direct Payments are payments to producers for which payment yields and base acres are established. The commodity
payment amount is calculated as follows: Payment Amount
= specified rate × payment acres × payment yield. At the
option of the producer, the producer can choose to receive
advance payments (up to 50%) during the producer’s selected
month. The month selected may be any month during the
period beginning on December 1 of the calendar year before
the calendar year in which the crop of the covered commodity
is harvested through the month within which the direct payment would otherwise be made.
Counter-Cyclical Payments are payments to producers for
which payment yields and base acres are established for eligible commodities if it is determined that the effective commodity price is less than the target commodity price. Countercyclical payments will be made for the crop as soon as practicable after the end of the 12-month marketing year for
the eligible commodity. If, before the end of the 12-month
marketing year it is determined that counter-cyclical payments will be required for the eligible commodity, producers
will be provided the option to receive partial payment of the
projected counter-cyclical payment.
Marketing assessments. The 1949 Act mandated assessments for tobacco, and the 1996 Act required such assessments for peanuts and sugar. The 2000 Act suspended sugar
marketing assessment collections through 2001. The 2002
Farm Bill did not resume the sugar marketing assessment
collections. Tobacco marketing assessments were authorized
through crop year 1998.
Marketing assistance loans. The 2002 Farm Bill authorized
producers of eligible crops to receive non-recourse marketing
assistance loans from the government for any quantity of
a loan commodity produced on the farm by pledging their
production as loan collateral. This loan shall have a term
of 9 months beginning on the first day of the first month
after the month in which the loan is made. The loan cannot
be extended. As a condition of the receipt of a marketing
assistance loan, the producer shall comply with applicable
conservation requirements under subtitle B of title XII of
the Food Security Act of 1985 and applicable wetland protection requirements under subtitle C of title XII of the Act
during the term of the loan. Producers of eligible commodities
can repay a marketing assistance loan at a rate that is the
lesser of (1) the loan rate established for the commodity plus
interest; or (2) a rate that the Secretary determines. Special
rules apply to upland cotton, rice, and extra long staple cotton. Crops eligible for marketing assistance loans include
wheat, corn, barley, oats, grain sorghum, rice, upland cotton,
soybeans, extra long staple cotton, other oilseeds, dry peas,
lentils, small chickpeas, honey, wool, and mohair.
Peanut price support program. Under the 2002 Farm Bill,
peanuts qualify for direct payments, counter-cyclical payments, marketing assistance loans and loan deficiency payments for the 2002 through 2007 crops.

The 2002 Farm Bill terminated the marketing quota programs and repealed price support programs. The prior quota
programs stayed in effect for the 2001 crop only, with quota
buyout compensation payments being made during fiscal
years 2002 through 2006. The prior price support programs
remained in effect for the 2002 crop only, notwithstanding
any other provision of law or crop insurance policy.
The 2002 Farm Bill established marketing assistance loans
for the 2002 through 2007 crops, with the loan rate for peanuts of $355 per ton. The payment rate shall be the amount
by which the established loan rate exceeds the rate at which
a loan may be repaid. The Farm Bill also requires that for
crop years 2002 through 2006 CCC will pay storage, handling,
and other associated costs to ensure proper storage of peanuts
for which a loan is made. This authority terminates beginning
with the 2007 crop.
Tobacco program. The American Jobs Creation Act of 2004,
P.L. 108–357, eliminated the program effective with the 2005
crop. In return for losing the program, growers and quota
holders will receive a buyout. The owners of quota will be
paid $7 per pound for the quota they hold. The actual producers will be paid $3 per pound for the quota they produced.
The legislation eliminates all geographic and poundage restrictions on tobacco production as well as price support. The
buyout will be funded by assessments on the tobacco product
manufacturers and importers. The program will cost $10.14
billion, and the growers and quota holders will be paid over
a 10-year period.
Sugar program. Sugar qualifies for price support. The 2002
Farm Bill extended the national average sugar loan rates
to cover through the 2007 crops at 18 cents per pound for
raw cane sugar and 22.9 cents per pound for refined beet
sugar. Loans are available to processors of domestically grown
sugarcane and sugar beets for a term of nine months that
does not begin or extend beyond the end/beginning of a fiscal
year. The non-recourse loans are extended through the 2007
crop for processors of domestically produced sugar beets and
sugarcane including for in-process sugar. Loans for in-process
sugar have a loan rate of 80% of the loan rate for raw cane
sugar or refined beet sugar (based on the source material
used). If forfeitures occur, the processor shall convert the
in-process into final product at no cost to the CCC. Upon
transfer, the processor will receive payment based on the
loan rate less 80% of raw cane or refined beet sugar rate
times the quantity of sugar transferred. The loan program
is assumed to continue through the 2012 crop. The 2002 Farm
Bill did not resume the sugar marketing assessment collections but authorized marketing allotments. The 2002 Act provides assistance for sugar donations in the amount of 10,000
tons to compensate sugar producers who suffer losses incurred
beyond existing CCC administered programs.
Dairy program. The 2002 Farm Bill extended the Dairy
Price Support Program from June 1, 2002 through December
31, 2007 at a rate of $9.90 per hundredweight for milk containing 3.67% butterfat. The support program is carried out
through the purchase of butter, nonfat dry milk, and cheese
at prices that enable processors to pay dairy farmers, on
average, the support price for milk. As under previous law,
the Secretary may allocate the rate of price support between
the purchase prices for nonfat dry milk and butter in a manner that minimizes CCC expenditures or other objectives, as
the Secretary considers appropriate. Cash CCC inventory
sales (with some exceptions) shall be at any price that the
Secretary determines will maximize CCC returns. The 2002
Farm Bill repealed all legislative authority for the Dairy Recourse Loan Program but established a new Milk Income
Loss Contract Program (MILC), under which the Secretary
may contract with eligible producers to make monthly payments when milk prices fall below specified levels.

Market loss assistance payments. The 2001 Appropriations
Act provided $99.8 million and the 2002 Appropriations Act
provided $75 million to apple producers for market loss assistance. The 2002 Farm Bill provided $94 million in additional
assistance, increasing apple market loss assistance to $268.8
million. The 2002 Farm Bill also provided a $10 million grant
to the state of New York for market loss assistance to onion
producers who suffered losses to onion crops during 1 or more
of the 1996 through 2000 crop years.
Payment Limitations. In general, the 2002 Farm Bill revised the Food Security Act of 1985 (7 U.S.C. 1308) for payment limitations. The total amount of direct payments made
to a person during any crop year for 1 or more covered commodities may not exceed $40,000. The total amount of
counter-cyclical payments made to a person during any crop
year for 1 or more covered commodities may not exceed
$65,000. Separate limits apply to direct and counter-cyclical
payments for peanuts. The total amount of gains and payments that a person may receive during any crop year under
marketing assistance loan and loan deficiency payment provisions may not exceed $75,000. Notwithstanding any other
provision of law, an individual or entity shall not be eligible
to receive any benefit described above if the average adjusted
annual gross income of the individual or entity exceeds
$2,500,000, unless not less than 75 percent of the average
adjusted gross income of the individual or entity is derived
from farming, ranching, or forestry operations, as determined
by the Secretary. This shall apply during the 2003 through
2007 crop years.
Disaster Payments. The Military Construction Appropriations and Emergency Hurricane Supplemental Appropriations
Act, 2005, P.L. 108–324, authorized more than $3 billion in
financial relief for farmers, ranchers, foresters, and other agricultural producers who incurred losses due to weather conditions in recent years.
Noninsured Assistance Program. The Agricultural Risk Protection Act of 2000 eliminated the area loss requirement for
triggers and made other changes. It also included a provision
that all types or varieties of a crop or commodity may be
considered to be a single eligible crop for NAP assistance.
Foreign Market Development and Food Assistance Programs.—
Dairy Export Incentive Program (DEIP). DEIP provides cash
bonus payments to exporters to facilitate commercial sales
of U.S. dairy products in overseas markets. Estimates of the
quantity of dairy products to be exported under DEIP and
associated expenditures were formulated within the maximum
allowable expenditure and quantity levels specified in conjunction with provisions of the Uruguay Round Agreement.
Consequently, current baseline projections assume that DEIP
will not exceed $116.6 million annually during FYs 2002–
2012. Actual DEIP subsidies are further limited on a productby-product basis under the Uruguay Round.
Export Enhancement Program (EEP). Current baseline projections assume an EEP annual program level for FYs 2003–
2013 will be $28 million. However, the 2002 Farm Bill authorizes funding up to $478 million annually for EEP through
2007, which will be available for EEP programming should
market conditions warrant. Actual subsidies for EEP are further limited on a product-by-product basis under the Uruguay
Round.
Market Access Program (MAP). Under the MAP, CCC Funds
are used to reimburse participating organizations for a portion of the costs of carrying out overseas marketing and promotional activities. The 2002 Farm Bill continued the authority for the MAP program and increased the funding as follows:

$100 million for FY 2002, $110 million for FY 2003, $125
million for FY 2004, $140 million for FY 2005, and $200
million for FY 2006 and 2007. The 2007 Budget assumes
funding of $100 million for FY 2007.
Foreign Market Development Cooperator Program (FMD)
and Quality Samples Program. Under the FMD program,
cost-share assistance is provided to nonprofit commodity and
agricultural trade associations to support overseas market development activities that are designed to remove long-term
impediments to increased U.S. trade. The 2002 Farm Bill
increased the available funds for this program to $34.5 million
for each of fiscal years 2002 through 2007.
CCC will fund the Quality Samples Program at an authorized annual level of $2.5 million. Under this initiative, samples of U.S. agricultural products will be provided to foreign
importers to promote a better understanding and appreciation
for the high quality of U.S. products.
Commodity Donations. The 2002 Farm Bill authorizes the
donation of surplus commodity inventory to domestic nutrition
programs. The Corporation may also donate commodities
under the authority of section 416(b) of the Agricultural Act
of 1949 to carry out programs of assistance in developing
countries and friendly countries and pay costs associated with
making the commodities available. Commodities that are acquired by CCC in the normal course of its domestic support
operations will be available for donation. The current CCC
inventory has nonfat dry milk available for donation. The
Corporation may also use its funds to furnish commodities
overseas under the authority of the Food for Progress Act
of 1985; however, not more than $40 million of the funds
of the Corporation (exclusive of the costs of commodities) may
be used for each fiscal year.
The Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust. The Bill Emerson
Humanitarian Trust (BEHT) is a commodity reserve that was
established to ensure that the United States can meet its
international food aid commitments. Commodities authorized
for the 4-million-ton reserve include wheat, corn, grain sorghum, and rice. The Secretary is authorized to release up
to 500,000 metric tons for urgent humanitarian relief in disasters in the case of unanticipated need and to release an additional 500,000 metric tons of eligible commodities that could
have been released but were not released in previous years.
The Secretary is authorized to release eligible commodities
from the reserve when supplies are so limited that eligible
commodities cannot be made available for programming under
P.L. 480. The 2002 Farm Bill extended the authorization to
replenish the BEHT through FY 2007. CCC is authorized
to hold funds as well as commodities in the reserve.
Conservation Programs.—Title II of the Farm Security and
Rural Investment Act of 2002, P.L. 107–171, authorizes funding for new and existing conservation programs implemented
by the Farm Service Agency or the Natural Resources Conservation Service and funded through the Commodity Credit
Corporation. The bill provides additional funding to help
farmers adopt and maintain conservation systems that protect
water quality, reduce soil erosion, protect and enhance wildlife habitat and wetlands, conserve water, and sequester carbon. One such program is the Conservation Reserve Program
administered by FSA.
Up to 39.2 million acres may be enrolled at any one time.
CRP is USDA’s largest conservation/environmental program.
The purpose of CRP is to cost-effectively assist farm owners
and operators in conserving and improving soil, water, air,
and wildlife resources by converting highly erodible and other
environmentally sensitive acreage normally devoted to the
production of agricultural commodities to a long-term resource-conserving cover. CRP participants enroll contracts for
periods from 10 to 15 years in exchange for annual rental
payments and cost-share and technical assistance for installing approved conservation practices.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

The CRP is authorized in all 50 States, Puerto Rico, and
the Virgin Islands, on all highly erodible cropland, other environmentally sensitive cropland, and certain marginal
pastureland meeting the eligibility criteria. In addition to
cropland in areas adjacent to lakes and streams that can
be devoted to filter strips, and cropland subject to overflow
and suffering from scour erosion, eligible land may include
cropland contributing to water quality problems, and other
lands posing environmental threats. Also eligible for the CRP
are water quality or wildlife habitat impaired areas that do
not meet the highly erodible land (HEL) criteria, such as
the Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, and Long Island Sound
watershed regions.
The financial assistance for conservation programs where
the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is the
lead agency, is transferred from CCC to NRCS’s Farm Security and Rural Investment Programs account (see the NRCS
section). Specifically, these programs include the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, Wetlands Reserve Program, Wildlife Habitat Incentives program, Farm and Ranch
Lands Protection Program, Conservation Security Program,
and Grassland Reserve Program.
The Agricultural Risk Protection Act of 2000 authorized
CCC funding of $10 million for 2001 and subsequent years
for the Agricultural Management Assistance Program
(AMAP). AMAP provides cost-share assistance to producers
in not less than 10, nor more than 15, States in which the
Federal Crop Insurance Program is historically low as determined by the Secretary of Agriculture. The 2002 Farm Bill
increased CCC funding to $20 million annually. The Secretary
delegated authority to Natural Resources Conservation Service, Risk Management Agency, and the Agricultural Marketing Service. The 2007 Budget assumes the $14 million
authorized for use will not be funded because the assistance
AMAP provides is duplicative of other priority conservation
programs, such as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
Emergency Forestry Conservation Reserve Program.—The
Emergency Supplemental Appropriations to Address Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and Pandemic Influenza, 2006,
P.L. 109–148, mandates that during calendar year 2006, the
Secretary shall carry out an emergency pilot program in
States that the Secretary determines have suffered damage
to merchantable timber in counties affected by hurricanes
during the 2005 calendar year. The Act provides $404.1 million for this program.

Operating expenses.—The Corporation carries out its functions through utilization of employees and facilities of other
Government agencies. Administrative expenses are incurred
by: the Farm Service Agency (FSA); the Foreign Agricultural
Service; the Natural Resources Conservation Service; the Risk
Management Agency; other agencies of the Department engaged in the Corporation’s activities; and the Office of the
Inspector General for audit functions. Additional expenses are
incurred by FSA county offices for work related to programs
of the Corporation, other FSA expenses offset by revenue,
custodian, and agency expenses of the Federal Reserve banks
and lending agencies, and miscellaneous costs.
Expenses are incurred for acquisition, operation, maintenance, improvement, or disposition of existing property that
the Corporation owns or in which it has an interest. These
expenses are treated as program expenses. Such program expenses include inspection, classing, and grading work performed on a fee basis by Federal employees or Federal- or
State-licensed inspectors; and special services performed by
Federal agencies within and outside this Department. Most
of these general expenses, including storage and handling,
transportation, inspection, classing and grading, and producer
storage payments, are included in program costs. They are
shown in the program and financing schedule in the entries
entitled ‘‘Storage, transportation, and other obligations not
included above,’’ and ‘‘Producer storage payments.’’

FINANCING

Borrowing authority.—The Corporation has an authorized
capital stock of $100 million held by the U.S. Treasury and,
effective in 1988, authority to have outstanding borrowings
up to $30 billion at any one time.
Funds are borrowed from the Treasury and may also be
borrowed from private lending agencies and others. The Corporation reserves a sufficient amount of its borrowing authority to purchase at any time all notes and other obligations
evidencing loans made to the Corporation by such agencies
and others. All bonds, notes, debentures, and similar obligations issued by the Corporation are subject to approval by
the Secretary of the Treasury as required by the Act of March
8, 1938.
Interest on borrowings from the Treasury (and on capital
stock) is paid at a rate based upon the average interest rate
of all outstanding marketable obligations (of comparable maturity date) of the United States as of the preceding month.
Interest is also paid on other notes and obligations at a rate
prescribed by the Corporation and approved by the Secretary
of the Treasury.
The Department of Agriculture and Related Agencies Appropriation Act, 1966, made provision for terminating interest
after June 30, 1964 on the portion of the Corporation’s borrowings from the Treasury equal to the unreimbursed realized
losses recorded on the books of the Corporation after the
end of the fiscal year in which such losses are realized.

Note.—Accounts payable, accrued liabilities, and other outstanding obligations not reflected on this table do
not become charges against the statutory borrowing authority until they result in borrowings from the Treasury.

Contract authority.—Price support and other programs required by statute may result in the Corporation incurring
obligations in excess of available funds and borrowing authority. Such obligations are liquidated from subsequent appropriations and other funds that may become available to the
Corporation. Any increase in obligations in excess of available
fund resources is reported as contract authority in the year
involved; a decrease is reported as the application of appropriations and other funds to liquidate the authority.
Appropriations.—Under section 2 of Public Law 87–155 annual appropriations are authorized for each fiscal year to
reimburse the Corporation for net realized losses incurred
as of the close of each year.
The special activities are financed as indicated in the program descriptions above. In addition to certain reimbursements from other agencies, appropriations are made for foreign assistance programs.

Commodity Certificates.—Subtitle B of the 2000 Act allows
for the use of commodity certificates. In making in-kind payments, CCC may (a) ‘‘acquire and use commodities that have
been pledged to the Commodity Credit Corporation as collateral for loans made by the Corporation;’’ (b) ‘‘use other commodities owned by the Commodity Credit Corporation;’’ and
(c) ‘‘redeem negotiable marketing certificates for cash under
terms and conditions established. Commodity certificates discourage producers from forfeiting commodities pledged as collateral for CCC commodity loans. Certificates are used to
repay marketing assistance loans when the adjusted world
price (for rice and upland cotton) or the posted county price
(for wheat, feed grains, soybeans, wool, mohair, honey, peanuts, dry peas, lentils, small chickpeas, and designated minor
oilseeds) is lower than the applicable loan rate. The Budget
assumes that commodity certificates may be exchanged for
loan collateral through crop year 2015.

The 2007 President’s Budget proposes to reduce CCC support to farmers by $7.7 billion over ten years. In order to
do so, the Administration proposes making the following legislative changes to reduce agricultural spending:
• Reduce all crop payments to farmers by 5 percent. Payment to farmers from all commodity programs (marketing
loans, direct and counter-cyclical payments, and the Milk Income Loss Compensation program) would be calculated and
payments would be reduced by 5 percent. (Savings = $4.9
billion over 10 years).

filed, and the CCC will promptly pay claims found to be
in good order. CCC usually guarantees 98 percent of the
principal payment due and interest based on a percentage
of the one-year Treasury rate.
A portion of the guarantees made available under the
GSM–102 program is provided as Supplier Credit Guarantees.
Under this activity, CCC guarantees a portion of payment
due from importers under short-term financing (for up to
180 days) that exporters have extended directly to the importers for the purchase of U.S. agricultural commodities and
products. CCC does not provide financing, but guarantees
payment due from an importer. A substantially smaller portion of the value of exports (currently 65 percent) is guaranteed under Supplier Credit Guarantees than under regular
GSM–102 guarantees where CCC is guaranteeing foreign
bank obligations.
A portion of the GSM–102 guarantees is also made available as Facilities Guarantees. Under this activity, CCC guarantees export financing for capital goods and services to improve handling, marketing, processing, storage, or distribution
of imported agricultural commodities and products.
The subsidy estimates for the GSM–102 and GSM–103 programs are determined in large part by the obligor’s sovereign
or non-sovereign country risk grade. These grades are developed annually by the International Credit Risk Assessment
System Committee (ICRAS). In unusual circumstances, an
ICRAS grade for a country may change during the fiscal
year. The default estimates for GSM guarantees are determined in large part by the risk premia assigned for each
risk grade.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the credit guarantees committed in 1992 and beyond (including modifications of credit guarantees that resulted from obligations or commitments in any year), as well
as administrative expenses of this program. The subsidy
amounts are estimated on a present value basis; the administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis. The 2007
Budget displays the GSM loan guarantee volume and the
subsidy level that can be justified by forecast economic conditions, the expected supply/demand conditions of countries requesting GSM loan guarantees.

This is the program account for the GSM–102 and GSM–
103 CCC Export Credit Guarantee Programs. The Export
Credit Guarantee Program (GSM–102) covers credit terms
of up to 3 years. The Intermediate Export Credit Guarantee
Program (GSM–103) was discontinued as of July 2005. Under
these programs, CCC does not provide financing, but guarantees payments due from foreign banks and buyers. Because
payment is guaranteed, financial institutions in the United
States can offer competitive credit terms to foreign banks,
usually with interest rates based on the London Inter-Bank
Offered Rate (LIBOR). If the foreign bank fails to make any
payment as agreed, the exporter or assignee must submit
a notice of default to the CCC. A claim for loss must be

Farm Storage Facility Loan (FSFL) Program. The FSFL
program was established by CCC in 1949 to offer low-cost
financing to producers for the construction or upgrade of onfarm storage facilities. The program was discontinued in the
early 1980’s when studies showed sufficient storage space
was available. The FSFL was re-established in 2000 due to
a severe shortage of sufficient available storage. The program
was implemented in 2000 by CCC under Section 504(c) of
the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990. The program provides
Sfmt 3616

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

producers financing with five- to ten-year repayment terms
and low interest rates. The program gives producers greater
marketing flexibility when farm storage is limited and/or
transportation difficulties cause storage problems, allows
farmers to benefit from new marketing and technological advances, and maximizes their returns through identity-preserved marketing.
Sugar Storage Facility Loans. The 2002 Farm Bill directs
that the CCC establish a sugar storage facility loan program
to provide financing for processors of domestically produced
sugarcane and sugar beets to construct or upgrade storage
and handling facilities for raw sugars and refined sugars.
The loan term is a minimum of 7 years with the amount
and terms being determined as any other commercial loan.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records the subsidy costs associated with the
direct loans obligated in 1992 and beyond, as well as administrative expenses of this program. The subsidy amounts are
estimated on a prevent value basis; the administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis.

Under the authorities of Public Law 83–566, watershed
planning assistance is provided to States and communities
to address specific resource problems on a watershed scale.
The funds are used to cooperate with other agencies and
the States in providing local decision makers with resource
data, derived from cooperative river basin surveys and floodplain management studies, for use in decision making. Watershed plans are used to develop the small watershed projects.
Watershed work plans are prepared by sponsoring local
organizations with the Department’s assistance or through
State and local resources. The FY 2007 Budget does not request funding for this program because the Budget is also
not proposing to fund additional watershed operations
projects.

age rehabilitation efforts, depending upon the needs and opportunities. In order to improve the environmental and economic benefits of these projects, NRCS intends to focus on
developing and funding non-structural flood prevention measures.
Emergency watershed protection.—This program authorizes
the Secretary of Agriculture to undertake such emergency
measures for runoff retardation and soil erosion prevention
as may be needed to safeguard life and property from floods
and the products of erosion on any watershed whenever natural elements or forces cause a sudden impairment of that
watershed. An emergency is considered to exist when a watershed is suddenly impaired by flood, fire, wind, earthquake,
drought or other natural causes and consequently life and
property are endangered by floodwater, erosion, or sediment
discharge. The emergency area need not be declared a national disaster area to be eligible for emergency watershed
protection. Emergency watershed protection is applicable to
small scale, localized disasters as well as large scale disasters.
State environmental, natural resource, fish and game, and
other agencies participate in planning and coordinating emergency work. Funding for the emergency watershed protection
program is typically provided through emergency supplemental appropriations.
Watershed operations authorized by Public Law 78–534.—
The Department cooperates with soil conservation districts
and other local organizations in planning and installing flood
prevention improvements in 11 watersheds authorized by the
Flood Control Act of 1944. The Federal Government shares
the cost of improvements for flood prevention, agricultural
water management, recreation, and fish and wildlife development.
Small watershed operations authorized by Public Law 83–
566.—The Department provides technical and financial assistance to local organizations to install measures for watershed
protection, flood prevention, agricultural water management,
recreation, and fish and wildlife enhancement. At least 60
percent of the funding provided is used for financial assistance. The 2007 Budget redirects this program’s resources to
other priority programs within the Agency.
Loans through the Agricultural Credit Insurance Fund have
been made in previous years to the local sponsors in order
to fund the local cost of Public Law 83–566 or 78–534 projects.
No funding for these loans is assumed in 2007.
The 2007 Budget does not request funding for the watershed operations program.

The Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Program began in February 1964 under authority of Section 102
of the Food and Agricultural Act of 1962 (P.L. 87–703) and
other Departmental authorities. Sections 1528–1538 of the
Agricultural and Food Act of 1981 have replaced these authorities. This act authorized a program to encourage and
improve the capability of State and local units of government
and local nonprofit organizations in rural areas to plan, develop, and implement programs for resource conservation and
development. Through the establishment of RC&D areas, led
by a council, the program establishes or improves coordination
systems in rural communities and builds rural community
leadership skills to effectively utilize Federal, State and local
programs for the communities’ benefit. The Farm Security
and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (P.L. 107–171) permanently
reauthorized RC&D.
Designated RC&D areas are provided technical assistance
to help States and local units of government prepare plans
for resource development and economic improvement and to
plan and install community-related conservation projects. Financial contributions, loans, and other Federal assistance may
be used to help carry out projects specified in RC&D area
plans. These coordinators help the area councils develop plans
and proposals to compete for financial assistance from other
Federal, State and private sources.
The 2007 Budget proposes new policy for the RC&D Program that consolidates and streamlines all RC&D areas and
operations. Under this proposal the number of RC&D coordinators would be reduced from the current 375 to approximately 150. This policy is based on a finding that the program
is duplicative of other USDA and Federal resource conservation and rural development programs. The new streamlined
RC&D program will be focused on multi-county planning and
intergovernmental relations.
The following tabulation shows the status of RC&D areas
authorized to receive technical and financial assistance.

Title V of the Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003
(Public Law 108–148) authorizes the establishment of the
Healthy Forests Reserve Program (HFRP). The purpose of
this program is to assist landowners in restoring, enhancing
and protecting forest ecosystems to 1) promote the recovery
of threatened and endangered species, 2) improve biodiversity,
and 3) enhance carbon sequestration.
NRCS provides national leadership for the implementation
of this voluntary program. At the state level, the NRCS State
Conservationist determines how best to deliver HFRP and
implement national policies in an efficient manner based on
the national priorities identified in each sign-up announcement. Only privately held land is eligible for enrollment into
HFRP. Land enrolled in the HFRP must have a restoration
plan that includes practices necessary to restore and enhance
habitat for species listed as threatened or endangered or candidates for the threatened or endangered species list. Technical assistance will be provided by USDA to assist owners
in complying with the terms of restoration plans under the
HFRP.

The 1996 Farm Bill combined the authority for this and
several other conservation programs into the Environmental
Quality Incentives Program. Prior-year account balances are
maintained in this account until expended.
This program provides cost-share assistance to participating
landowners or operators in the Great Plains area in the development and installation of long-term conservation plans and
practices for their land under contracts entered into in prior
years. It is a voluntary program in 556 designated counties
of 10 Great Plains States. Contracts with individual landowners range in time from 3 to 10 years.

No funds are proposed for the Forestry Incentives Program
(FIP). The FIP was not reauthorized by the Farm Security
and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (P.L. 107–171). Prior-year
account balances are maintained in this account until expended.
FIP shares up to 65 percent of the cost of tree planting
and timber stand improvement. The percentage cost-shared
depends on the rate set in a particular State and county
by NRCS, after consulting with the State forester. The program is available in designated counties based on a Forest
Service survey of total eligible private timberland available
for production of timber products. Technical assistance is provided by the Forest Service.

The objectives of the Water Bank Program are to conserve
water; preserve, maintain, and improve the Nation’s wetlands;
increase waterfowl habitat in migratory waterfowl nesting,
breeding, and feeding areas in the United States; and secure
recreational and environmental benefits for the Nation. The
program was authorized by the Water Bank Act of 1970,
as amended by Public Law 96–182, approved January 2, 1980.
Funding for the expiring 1985 Water Bank agreements were
transferred from the Wetlands Reserve Program 1995 appropriation to this account as authorized under the Water Bank
Extension Act of 1994. The 2007 Budget does not request
program funding.

The Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program
(CRBSC), was authorized under section 202(c) of Title II of
the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act, as amended
by section 334, subtitle D, Title III of the Federal Agriculture
Improvement Act (FAIR Act) of 1996. The FAIR Act, combined authority of the Agricultural Conservation Program
(ACP), Water Quality Incentive Program (WQIP), Great
Plains Conservation Program (GPCP), and the Colorado River
Basin Salinity Control Program (CRBSC), into the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). The FAIR Act
also repealed CRBSC authority, while maintaining program
account balances until expended.
Beginning in 1996, EQIP was implemented on an interim
program level for CRBSC. Program funding provided costshare assistance to landowners and others in the Colorado
River Basin States to include: Colorado, Utah and Wyoming.
The program’s main objective is to enhance the supply and
quality of water in the Colorado River for delivery to downstream users in the U.S. and Mexico.

Section 1240N of the Food Security Act of 1985, as amended
by Section 2502 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment
Act of 2002 (2002 Farm Bill), authorized the Wildlife Habitat
Incentives Program (WHIP) as a voluntary approach to improving wildlife habitat in our nation. The Natural Resources
Conservation Service (NRCS) provides program administration for WHIP.
WHIP is a voluntary program that provides assistance to
eligible participants to develop upland wildlife, wetland wildlife, threatened and endangered species, fish and other types
of wildlife habitat in an environmentally beneficial and cost
effective manner. The purpose of the program is to create
high-quality wildlife habitats that support wildlife populations
of local, state, and national significance.
The 2002 Farm Bill reauthorized WHIP through 2007.
Funding for WHIP is now provided through NRCS’s Farm
Security and Rural Investment Account. Information displayed in this section represents unobligated balances remaining from the 1996 Farm Bill only.

This program, also known as ‘‘Farms for the Future,’’ provides guarantees and interest assistance on loans made to
State trust funds, who in turn finance acquisitions to preserve
farmland in selected states. No guarantees have been made
since 1993.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this non-budgetary account records all cash flows to and from
the Government resulting from guaranteed loans committed
in 1992 and beyond. The amounts in this account are a means
of financing and are not included in the budget totals.

in accordance with the provisions set forth in the Federal
Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996, as amended, Public Law 104–127 (the 1996 Act). Consolidating funding
for these loan and grant programs under RCAP provides
greater flexibility to tailor financial assistance to applicant
needs.
RCAP is composed of the following three funding streams:
Rural Community Facilities, Rural Utilities, and Rural Business and Cooperative Development. Funds for Native American Communities are provided as part of the whole amount
appropriated for these streams as part of the Native Americans Initiative. The funds are earmarked to one of the funding
streams.
Water and waste disposal loans are authorized under 7
U.S.C. 1926. The program provides direct loans to municipalities, counties, special purpose districts, certain Indian Tribes,
and non-profit corporations to develop water and waste disposal systems in rural areas and towns with populations of
less than 10,000. The program also guarantees water and
waste disposal loans made by banks and other eligible lenders. Total loan level is projected to be $990 million for these
programs in 2007. The 2007 subsidy rate for this program
reflects a reduction in the borrower’s interest rate for these
loans, making them more affordable to qualifying rural communities.
Water and waste disposal grants are authorized under Section 306(a)(2) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act, as amended. Grants are authorized to be made
to associations, including nonprofit corporations, municipalities, counties, public and quasi-public agencies, and certain
Indian tribes. The grants can be used to finance development,

labor housing projects. Funding under this account is provided
for renewals of existing rental assistance contracts, assistance
for newly constructed units financed by the section 515 rural
rental and cooperative housing program or the 514/516 farm
labor housing loan and grant programs, and for additional
servicing assistance for existing projects.
For 2007, the request for rental assistance grants is for
two-year contracts with a total funding level of $486 million.
Two years is the minimal contract term that provides savings
but still allows the multi-family housing direct loan program
to operate efficiently.
From 1978 through 1991, the rental assistance program
was funded under the Rural Housing Insurance Fund. Beginning in 1992, pursuant to Credit Reform, a separate grant
account was established for this program.

USDA’s portfolio of multifamily housing projects provides
housing for nearly half a million low-income families, many
of whom are elderly. Recent Federal court rulings allow
projects that received their financing prior to 1989 to prepay
and leave the program. A recent assessment of the capital
and operating needs of the projects indicated that about 10
percent of the projects have economically viable prepayment
potential and that about 46,000 tenants of these projects risk
substantial rent increases and possible loss of their housing
if these projects are prepaid. Current law allows USDA to
assist these families by providing them with letters of priority
and vouchers which have not been funded to date. The 2007
Budget includes $74 million to continue the multifamily housing revitalization proposal that was initially proposed in the
2006 Budget. The funding will be used primarily for housing

vouchers for residents of projects whose sponsors prepay their
outstanding indebtedness on USDA loans and leave the program. The appropriation language for this funding is consistent with the 2006 appropriation language that requires
such vouchers to be administered, to the maximum extent
possible, under current regulations and administrative guidance applicable to section 8 vouchers, including delivery costs;
and allows the number of such vouchers to exceed 5,000,
and allows the vouchers to all low-income residents who are
affected by prepayment, regardless of whether they were receiving rental assistance payments. In addition, the Administration is proposing that 2007 appropriation language provide
the flexibility to use the $74 million for debt restructuring
and other revitalization incentives that we expect to be authorized before or during 2007. The Administration has already submitted to Congress draft legislation that would authorize this revitalization effort.
Prior year obligated balances reflect funding for rental assistance for newly constructed units provided in limited
amounts in 1984 and 1985. From 1986 through 1991 rental
assistance for newly constructed units, as well as existing
rental assistance contract renewals and additional servicing
assistance for existing projects, had been funded under the
Rural Housing Insurance Fund. Beginning in 1992, pursuant
to Credit Reform, a separate grant account was established
for the rental assistance program.

RURAL COMMUNITY GRANTS

Rural firefighters and emergency personnel grants are authorized under 7 U.S.C. 2655. Grants are provided to local
government and Indian tribes to pay the cost of training
firefighters and emergency personnel in firefighting, emergency medical practices, and responding to hazardous materials and bioagents in rural areas. Not less than 60 percent
of the amounts made available for training grants shall be
used to provide grants to fund partial scholarships for training of individuals at training centers. The remaining funding
may be made available for grants to provide financial assistance to State and regional centers that provide training for
firefighters and emergency medical personnel for improvements to the training facility, equipment, curricula, and personnel. The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002,
Public Law 107–171, provides mandatory funding for this program. The Act provided $10,000,000 for each of fiscal years
2003 through 2007, to remain available until expended, from
the funds of the Commodity Credit Corporation. Reconciliation canceled the funding and no funds are provided in the
Budget because other programs in Forest Service, Federal
Emergency Management Agency, and the Bureau of Land
Management provide significant funding for this purpose.

Rural Housing Insurance Fund.—This fund was established
in 1965 (Public Law 89–117) pursuant to section 517 of title
V of the Housing Act of 1949, as amended.
The programs funded through the Rural Housing Insurance
Fund Program account are: section 502 very low and low
to moderate income homeownership loans and guarantees;
section 504 very low-income housing repair loans; section 515
rural rental housing loans; section 524 housing site loans,
single family and multi-family housing credit sales of acquired
property, and section 538 multi-family housing guarantees.
The section 523 self-help housing land development loan program was included under this heading beginning in 1997.
Previously, this loan program was accounted for under the
separate heading of ‘‘Self-Help Housing Land Development
Fund Program Account.’’ Starting in 2001, section 514 domestic farm labor housing loans and grants are funded under
the new Farm Labor Program Account in order to provide
flexibility between loans and the farm labor housing grants.
Loan programs are limited to rural areas that include
towns, villages, and other places which are not part of an
urban area and that have a population not in excess of 2,500
inhabitants, or is in excess of 2,500 but not in excess of
10,000 if rural in character, or has a population in excess
of 10,000 but not more than 20,000 and is not within a
standard metropolitan statistical area and has a serious lack
of mortgage credit for low- and moderate-income borrowers.
No funds are requested in 2007 for section 515 rural rental
housing loans. However, RHS will continue to revitalize the
existing 515 portfolio by providing a voucher program to assist tenants that have been displaced due to property owners
prepaying their loans. Additional authorizations are anticipated to assist in revitalizing the portfolio.
For 502 guaranteed single family housing loans in 2007,
the Budget reflects an increase in the guarantee fee on new
loans to 3.0 percent and will allow more lower income rural
Americans to continue to afford these loans. In 2002, RHS
approved separate risk categories for the guarantee refinancing (refis) and guarantees of new loans. The guarantee
fee for the refis will remain at 0.5 percent. This change reflected the lower risk on refis as compared to an unseasoned
borrower receiving a new loan. It is consistent with the rate
HUD and VA charge on their refis of similar loans.
The budget includes appropriation bill language to ensure
that the Section 502 single family housing loan guarantee
program is carried out in a manner that is not redundant
of other Federal housing programs. This language constrains
eligibility to applicants who are not able to obtain other federally guaranteed home ownership loans from their lenders.
A recent PART analysis found that the program, as currently
operated, is redundant of other Federal programs.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the direct loans obligated and loan guarantees

The goal of the Empowerment Zone/Enterprise Community
(EZ/EC) initiative is to revitalize rural communities in a manner that attracts private sector investment and thereby provides self-sustaining community and economic development.
Appropriated funding in 1999 through 2002 was provided for
EZ/ECs designated as part of the second round of this initiative.
No funding is provided in 2007 for EZ/EC grants. For
grants like these that are for community organizations to
stimulate economic development, the 2007 Budget proposes
to consolidate them into a new economic and community development program to be administered by the Department
of Commerce. The new program would be designed to achieve
greater results and focus on communities most in need of
assistance.

Grants for rural cooperative development were authorized
under section 310B(e) of the Consolidated Farm and Rural
Development Act by Public Law 104–127, April 4, 1996. These
grants are made available to nonprofit corporations and institutions of higher education to fund the establishment and
operation of centers for rural cooperative development. The
primary purpose of the centers is the improvement of economic conditions of rural areas through the development of
new cooperatives and improving operations of existing cooperatives. RBS can fund up to 75 percent of any project
and associated administrative costs and requires at least a
25 percent matching share from the applicant which must
be from non-Federal sources.
The Appropriate Technology Transfer to Rural Areas
(ATTRA) program was first authorized by the Food Security
Act of 1985. The program provides information and technical
assistance to agricultural producers to adopt sustainable agricultural practices that are environmentally friendly and lower

production costs. The 2007 Budget provides no funding for
this purpose.
Funds are requested for cooperative research agreements
to help the Rural Development mission area maintain a predictable level of research on agricultural and non-agricultural
cooperative issues.
Additionally, USDA provides value added marketing grants
for cooperatives. These were first funded in the Agriculture
Risk Protection Act of 2000. The 2002 Farm Bill provided
$40 million for this purpose each year from 2002 through
2007. The 2007 Budget cancels these funds for a savings
of $40 million. However, $20.3 million in discretionary 2007
funds is provided for this purpose.

The Federal Agriculture Improvement Act of 1996 established the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center to
promote activities to strengthen and enhance production or
marketing of sheep and goat products in the United States.
The Center may provide loans or grants to eligible entities
to provide assistance to the industry for infrastructure development, business development, production, resource development, and market and environmental research. The 1996 Act
provided $20 million in mandatory funding for the establishment and operation of the Center and authorized additional
discretionary funding of $30 million. In 2000, $10 million
was granted to an intermediary to provide assistance to the
sheep and lamb industry. Additional funds have been added
to the original authorized amount so that the total available
for this purpose is now $28 million. No additional funds are
requested in 2007. This Program will be privatized in September 2006.

gram will provide rural communities with flexible resources
to develop comprehensive, collaborative, and locally-based
strategic planning processes; and will implement innovative
community and economic development strategies that optimize regional competitive advantages. The program was authorized and funded in section 6030 of the Farm Security
and Rural Investment Act of 2002, Public Law 107–171. The
Act provides that if the Secretary approves a national strategic investment plan submitted by the National Board, the
Secretary shall transfer $100,000,000 for planning grants and
innovation grants to Regional Boards from the Commodity
Credit Corporation, to remain available until expended. However, in 2004 these funds were blocked from being spent.
The Deficit Reduction Act cancels the funding and no funds
are provided in the Budget.

As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this non-budgetary account records all cash flows to and from
the Government resulting from direct loans obligated in 1992
and beyond. The amounts in this account are a means of
financing and are not included in the budget totals. The subsidy cost of these programs is funded through the Rural Community Advancement Program. Loans made prior to 1992 are
recorded in the Rural Development Insurance Fund Liquidating Account.
Direct business and industry loans are made to public, private, or cooperative organizations, Indian tribes or tribal
groups, corporate entities, or individuals for the purpose of
improving the economic climate in rural areas. Funding for
this purpose was discontinued beginning in 2002.

This account finances loans to intermediary borrowers, who,
in turn, re-lend the funds to small rural businesses, community development corporations, and other organizations for
the purpose of improving economic opportunities in rural
areas. Through the use of local intermediaries, this program
serves small-scale enterprises and gives preference to those
communities with the greatest need. In 2007 the Budget provides $34 million in loans for this purpose.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the direct loans obligated in 1992 and beyond,
as well as administrative expenses of this program. The subsidy amounts are estimated on a present value basis; the
administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis.

Rural economic development loans are made for the purpose
of promoting rural economic development and job creation
projects. Loans are made to electric and telecommunication
borrowers, who, in turn, finance rural development projects
in their service areas. Program costs are derived from interest
earnings on borrowers’ ‘‘cushion of credit’’ loan prepayments.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the direct loans obligated in 1992 and beyond.
The subsidy amounts are estimated on a present value basis.

The Rural Business Investment Program is authorized
under 7 U.S.C. 2009cc. The purpose of this program is to
promote economic development and the creation of wealth
and job opportunities in rural areas and among individuals
living in those areas by encouraging developmental capital
investments in smaller enterprises primarily located in rural
areas. RBS may enter into participation agreements with
rural business investment companies and may guarantee debentures of rural business investment companies to enable
each rural business investment company to make developmental venture capital investments in smaller enterprises in
rural areas. Grants will be made to rural business investment
companies and other entities for the purpose of providing
operational assistance to smaller enterprises financed by rural
business investment companies. The Rural Business Investment Program was authorized and provided mandatory funding by section 6029 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, Public Law 107–171. The Act provides
such sums as may be necessary for the cost of guaranteeing
$280 million of debentures and $44 million to make grants,
an estimated total of $100,000,000, to remain available until
expended from the funds of the Commodity Credit Corporation.
In 2006, the program is limited to $10 million. The Deficit
Reduction Act cancels the funding and no funds are provided
in the Budget.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the loan guarantees committed in 1992 and beyond, as well as administrative expenses of this program.
The subsidy amounts are estimated on a present value basis;
the administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis.

Renewable Energy Systems and Energy Efficiency Improvements is authorized under 7 U.S.C. 8106. This program provides direct loans, loan guarantees, and grants to farmers,
ranchers, and small rural businesses to purchase renewable
energy systems and make energy efficiency improvements.
The Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, Public
Law 107–171, dated May 13, 2002, provides mandatory funding for this program. Of the funds of the Commodity Credit
Corporation, the Secretary shall make available $23,000,000
for each of fiscal years 2003 through 2007. In 2005 and 2006,
the full $23 million was blocked from being spent. Similarly,
in 2007 $3 million in 2007 funds is canceled. However,
$10.163 million in discretionary funding is provided for this
purpose to ensure that any unmet need by other Federal
programs can potentially be accomodated. The Deficit Reduction Act cancels $20 million.

Funding was provided in 2001 through 2006 to support
grants for areas that have high energy costs. These grants
can be made to eligible entities or the Denali Commission
to construct, extend, upgrade, and otherwise improve energy
generation, transmission, or distribution facilities serving
communities in which the average residential expenditure for
home energy is at least 275 percent of the national average
residential expenditure for home energy (as determined by
the Energy Information Agency using the most recent data
available). Grants are also available to establish and support
a revolving fund to provide a more cost-effective means of
purchasing fuel where the fuel cannot be shipped by means
of surface transportation.

The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) conducts the rural electrification and the rural telecommunications loan programs.
The rural electrification loan program is financed through
RUS direct and guaranteed loans for the operation of generating plants, electric transmission, and distribution lines or
systems. The rural telecommunications loan program is financed through RUS direct loans for construction, expansion,
and operation of telecommunications lines and facilities or
systems.
USDA will propose rule changes to require recertification
of rural status for each electric and telecommunications borrower on the first loan request received in or after 2006
and on the first loan request received after each subsequent
Census.
USDA will determine if the current method of issuing loans,
‘‘first in; first out,’’ provides adequate support to the areas
with the highest priority needs. USDA has completed an analysis of electric loans made in 2002 and 2003 to determine
the characteristics of the communities to which the loans
are going, who the loans are supporting, benefits derived from
the loans by the communities, and how many loans and dollars are going to support poverty areas.
RUS will cancel loans obligated, but not disbursed, more
than ten years ago. Most electric loans obligated more than
ten years ago have either been disbursed or cancelled. However, current law prohibits the cancellation of telecommunications loans in most instances. This has resulted in many
outstanding obligations that are older than ten years. Since
loans are issued for specific projects, and technology is changing at a very fast pace, it is doubtful that the original project
will be accomplished ten years after a loan is approved. Legislation will be proposed to allow the cancellation of all electric
and telecommunications loan obligations that are more than
ten years old.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for rural electrification and telecommunications programs, the subsidy costs associated with the direct
and guaranteed loans obligated in 1992 and beyond (including
modifications of direct loans or loan guarantees that resulted
from obligations or commitments in any year), as well as
administrative expenses of this program. The subsidy
amounts are estimated on a present value basis; the administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis.

ernment’s stock. The Rural Telephone Bank liquidating account loans were transferred to the Rural Electrification and
Telecommunications liquidating account in 2006.
The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) will continue to service
all loans in this account providing business management and
technical assistance to the borrowers on a regular basis over
the life of the loans.
RUS will cancel loans obligated, but not disbursed, more
than ten years ago. Most electric loans obligated more than
ten years ago have either been disbursed or cancelled. However, current law prohibits the cancellation of telecommunications loans in most instances. This has resulted in many
outstanding obligations that are older than ten years. Since
loans are issued for specific projects, and technology is changing at a very fast pace, it is doubtful that the original project
will be accomplished ten years after a loan is approved. Legislation will be proposed to allow the cancellation of all electric
and telecommunications loan obligations that are more than
ten years old.
Rural electric.—This program is financed through RUS direct loans for the construction and operation of generating
plants, electric transmission, and distribution lines or systems.
The following tables reflect statistics on loans made through
the liquidating account only. Since 1992 new electric and
telephone loans have been made through a separate program
account.

The President’s Budget assumes the completion of dissolution of the Rural Telephone Bank in 2006 so no more federally
funded loans are proposed.
RUS will cancel loans obligated, but not disbursed, more
than ten years ago. Current law prohibits the cancellation
of RTB loans in most instances. This has resulted in many
outstanding obligations that are older than ten years. Since
loans are issued for specific projects, and technology is changing at a very fast pace, it is doubtful that the original project
will be accomplished ten years after a loan is approved. Legislation will be proposed to allow the cancellation of all RTB
loan obligations that are more than ten years old.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for the RTB, the subsidy costs associated
with the direct loans obligated in 1992 and beyond as well
as administrative expenses for the program. The subsidy
amounts are estimated on a present value basis; administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis.

Due to defaults in 2003, the subsidy rate for the Distance

the loans now cost the Government, the Budget proposes to
not provide any DLT loans in 2007.

Status of Guaranteed Loans (in millions of dollars)

The Rural Development Insurance Fund (RDIF) was established on October 1, 1972, pursuant to section 116 of the
Rural Development Act of 1972 (Public Law 92–419).
The fund is used to insure or guarantee loans for water
systems and waste disposal facilities, community facilities,
and industrial development in rural areas. Communities unable to afford low interest loans for water and waste disposal
facilities are also able to obtain water and waste disposal
grants.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for these loan programs, all cash flows
to and from the Government resulting from direct loans obligated and loan guarantees committed prior to 1992. All new
activity in these programs is recorded in corresponding program accounts and financing accounts.
In 1994, these loan programs were administered by the
Rural Development Administration. Under reorganization of
the Department of Agriculture, the water and waste direct
and guaranteed loan programs are administered by the Rural
Utilities Service, the community facility direct and guaranteed
loan programs are adminsitered by the Rural Housing Service, and the business and industry direct and guaranteed
loan programs are administered by the Rural Business-Cooperative Service.

FAS’ mission is to serve U.S. agriculture’s interests by expanding and maintaining international export opportunities
for U.S. agricultural, fish, and forest products and supporting
international economic development and trade capacity building and improving the Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) system to facilitate agricultural trade. The outcomes envisioned
are a more level playing field for U.S. agricultural producers
and exporters in the global marketplace and an expanded
ability to sustain economics growth and trade capacity in
developing and transitioning countries.
FAS’ core objective is to maintain and expand overseas
market opportunities for U.S. agriculture. In addition to a
highly specialized Washington-based staff, the agency maintains a targeted and highly efficient network of overseas offices that serve as first responders in cases of market disruption, provide critical market and policy intelligence to support
our strategic goals, and represent U.S. agriculture in consultations with foreign governments.
Market Access, Intelligence, and Analysis.—As the global
economy changes, expansion and creation of new foreign market opportunities is our most critical work. Incomes are growing around the world, creating a large number of potential
new customers that previously had little ability to buy foreign
goods. However, tariff and non-tariff barriers continue to restrict trade. Our primary tool to expand market access in
this environment is the negotiation of new trade agreements
that lower tariffs and address other trade distortions. FAS
provides the critical analysis, policy advice and representation
to ensure the U.S. government can push effectively to open
these markets. Critical to this effort is FAS’ detailed knowledge of foreign markets from both a country- and a commodity-based perspective.
Maintaining existing market access for agricultural products is also crucial. We analyze trade issues with the assistance of knowledgeable industry contacts and coordinate with
other agencies to develop effective strategies to prevent or
reverse unfair or trade-disruptive actions by our foreign trading partners. We monitor foreign compliance with our trade
agreements and work with other U.S. government agencies
to ensure those agreements are enforced, using formal dispute
mechanisms when needed. We also use the extensive expertise within USDA and in other Departments to pursue solutions to difficult technical issues that restrict trade, such as
those related to plant and animal health and food safety.

As tariffs come down globally, regulatory inconsistencies
among trading partners will become even more apparent. FAS
works bilaterally and with international organizations to encourage the development of transparent and science-based
regulatory systems that minimize trade-restrictive measures.
We ensure that trade interests are represented in the development of international standards, support developing country
participation in standards-setting bodies, and help build modern regulatory frameworks and institutions overseas. We also
provide training to help our trading partners comply with
their obligations under the WTO, particularly the Sanitary
and Phytosanitary Agreement.

Agricultural Development for National Security
The President’s National Security Strategy cites economic
development to be one of the top three priorities of U.S.
foreign policy, on par with ‘‘diplomacy’’ and ‘‘defense.’’ The
Strategy recognizes that the root of the national security
threat to the U.S. is the lack of economic development, which
often results in economic and political instability. For most
developing countries, a productive and sustainable agricultural sector is the engine for economic growth. Thus, improving agricultural productivity and markets for economic growth
is a critical part of the President’s National Security Strategy.
FAS directs assistance to those select countries identified as
strategic priorities for the U.S. government.
FAS focuses on three (3) main areas:
(1) Increasing the integration of agricultural markets into
the global economy through trade capacity building activities.
(2) Reducing hunger and malnutrition through the adoption
of sustainable, productivity-enhancing technologies and international food assistance activities.
(3) Targeting immediate relief efforts to post-conflict or
post-disaster states through agricultural reconstruction activities.

TRADE ADJUSTMENT ASSISTANCE

FOR

FARMERS

Program and Financing (in millions of dollars)

The FAS supports U.S. firms’ and industry export efforts
to build and maintain overseas markets for U.S. agricultural
products through trade related programs. These include:
Financial Marketing Assistance.—FAS administers price/
credit and risk-mitigation assistance programs designed to
leverage overseas market expansion for U.S. exporters. These
programs include the CCC Export Credit Guarantee Program,
the Export Enhancement Program and the Dairy Export Incentive Program. These programs give U.S. exporters the ability to counter export subsidies of foreign competitors and
allow U.S. exporters to compete with sales terms offered by
foreign competitors.
Market Development Programs.—FAS administers the Foreign Market Development (Cooperator) Program, Market Access Program, Technical Assistance for Specialty Crops Program, Quality Samples Program, and Emerging Markets Program. These are carried out chiefly in cooperation with nonprofit agricultural trade associations and private firms.
FAS also administers food assistance activities such as Public Law 480, Title I; Food for Progress; Section 416(b); and
the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and
Child Nutrition Program.
At the request of the Agency for International Development,
international organizations and foreign governments, technical assistance and training in agriculture and rural development are provided on a reimbursable or advance of funds
basis.

Assistance Act of 1954 (Public Law 480), as amended, USDA

FOREIGN ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

Trade Adjustment Assistance for farmers (TAA) is authorized by Title II of the Trade Act of 1974 as amended by
Subtitle C of Title I of the Trade Act of 2002. The statute
authorizes appropriations to the Department of Agriculture
not to exceed $90 million for each of the fiscal years 2003
through 2007 to carry out the program.
The statute requires the Secretary of Agriculture to provide
funds to eligible agricultural producers when: (a) the current
year’s price of an agricultural commodity is less than 80 percent of the national average price for such commodity for
the five marketing years preceding the most recent market
year; and (b) increases in imports contributed importantly
to the decline in the price, as determined by the Secretary.
TAA provides producers of raw commodities, who have been
adversely affected by import competition, free technical assistance and cash benefits of up to $10,000 per year.
TAA covers farmers, ranchers, fish farmers, and fishermen
competing with imported aquaculture products. It does not
cover the forest products industry.

FOREIGN ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
USDA has multiple food aid programs that provide U.S.
commodities, technical and financial assistance to address
hunger and malnutrition needs worldwide. USDA, working
with USAID, delivers food aid programs to meet emergency
needs and fosters economic development activities to alleviate
global food insecurity.
Included in this category are the following activities carried
out under the Agricultural Trade Development and Assistance
Act of 1954, Public Law 480, 83rd Congress, as amended
(P.L. 480): Financing sales of agricultural commodities to developing countries for dollars on credit terms, or for local
currencies (including for local currencies on credit terms) for
use under sec. 104 (title I); for dispositions abroad (titles
II and III); and for furnishing commodities to carry out the
Food for Progress Act of 1985, as amended. Agreements may
provide for commodities to be made available on a multiyear basis. During 2003, USDA began implementation of the
McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child
Nutrition Program authorized by the 2002 Farm Bill. USDA
also has a commodity reserve in the Bill Emerson Humanitarian Trust for unanticipated, emergency food aid needs.

This account funds the non-credit components of Public Law
480. Under title II, agricultural commodities are furnished
to meet famine or other emergency relief needs, combat malnutrition, carry out activities to alleviate the causes of hunger, mortality and morbidity, promote economic and community development, promote sound environmental practices,
and carry out feeding programs. Agricultural commodities are
provided through governments for emergencies only, and for
non-emergencies through public and private agencies, including intergovernmental organizations.
The Corporation is authorized to pay the costs of acquisition, packaging, processing, enrichment, preservation, fortification, transportation, handling, and other incidental costs
incurred up to the time of delivery at U.S. ports. The Corporation also pays ocean freight charges, and pays transportation
costs to points of entry other than ports in the case of landlocked countries, where carriers to a specific country are not
available, where ports cannot be used effectively, or where
a substantial savings in costs or time can be effected, and
pays general average contributions arising from ocean transport. In addition, transportation costs from designated points
of entry or ports of entry abroad to storage and distribution
sites and associated storage and distribution costs may be
paid for commodities made available under this title for nonemergency assistance for least-developed countries and for
urgent and extraordinary relief.
The program is administered by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
In addition, the request includes authority to use up to
twenty-five percent of the P.L. 480 Title II funds for the
local or regional purchase and distribution of food to assist
people threatened by a food security crisis. In particular, the
language is intended to authorize the Administrator of
USAID, when deemed appropriate, to procure food locally or
regionally from developing countries (in accordance with the
OECD Development Assistance Committee List of ODA Recipients) and to distribute such food in response to a food
security crisis. This will permit USAID to provide food assistance in the most timely and efficient manner to the most
critical emergency food crises. This authority will be used
in those instances where the rapid use of cash assistance
is critical to saving lives.

As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for the P.L. 480 Program, the subsidy
costs associated with the direct loans obligated in 1992 and
beyond (including modifications of direct loans that resulted
from obligation in any year), as well as administrative expenses of this program. The subsidy amounts are estimated
on a present value basis; the administrative expenses and
grants are estimated on a cash basis. The current balance
of Title I debt owed to USDA is $8.6 billion. No additional
funding is requested for new Title I loans in FY 2007. Food
for Progress grants will continue to be funded from the Commodity Credit Corporation.

Financing sales of agricultural commodities to developing
countries for dollars on credit terms, or for local currencies
(including for local currencies on credit terms) for use under
sec. 104; and for furnishing commodities to carry out the Food
for Progress Act of 1985, as amended (title I).—Funds appropriated for P.L. 480 are used to finance all sales made pursuant to agreements concluded under the authority of Title I.
No FY 2007 funding is requested for new direct credit under
Title I; however, funding for administrative expenses associated with managing the existing loan portfolio is requested.
No funding is requested for Title I ocean freight differential
for FY 2007.
Financing sales of agricultural commodities for dollars on
credit terms (title I).—Sales are made to developing countries
as defined in section 402(4) of P.L. 480 and must not displace
expected commercial sales (secs. 403(e) and (h)). Agreements
are made with developing countries for delivery in accordance
with the terms of the agreement.
Payment by developing countries or private entities may
be made over a period of not more than 30 years with a
deferral of principal payments for up to 5 years. Interest
accrues at a concessional rate as determined appropriate.
Section 411 of P.L. 480 authorizes the President to waive
payments of principal and interest under dollar credit sales
agreements for countries that meet certain enumerated requirements. Such debt relief may be provided only if the
President notifies Congress and may not exceed the amount
approved for such purpose in an Act appropriating funds to
carry out P.L. 480.
Financing sales of agricultural commodities for local currency, including for local currency on credit terms.—Payment
by a recipient country may be made in local currencies for
use in carrying out activities under section 104 of P.L. 480.
Foreign currency received in payment for credit extended
may be used for payment of U.S. obligations abroad, subject
to the appropriation process. The P.L. 480 program is reimbursed for the dollar value of currencies so used.

The financing of sales of agricultural commodities for local
currencies on credit terms is subject to the same terms that
are applicable to dollar credit financing.
Furnishing commodities to carry out the Food for Progress
Act of 1985, as amended (title I).—Funds appropriated to
carry out title I may be used to furnish commodities to carry
out the Food for Progress Act of 1985. Such commodities
may be furnished on credit terms or on a grant basis in
order to assist developing countries and countries that are
emerging democracies that have made a commitment to introduce and expand free enterprise elements in their agricultural
economies.
Commodities supplied in connection with dispositions
abroad (title II).—Under title II, agricultural commodities are
furnished to meet famine or other emergency relief needs,
combat malnutrition, carry out activities to alleviate the
causes of hunger, mortality and morbidity, promote economic
and community development, promote sound environmental
practices, and carry out feeding programs. Agricultural commodities are provided through governments for emergencies
only, and for non-emergencies through public and private
agencies, including intergovernmental organizations.
The Corporation is authorized to pay the costs of acquisition, packaging, processing, enrichment, preservation, fortification, transportation, handling, and other incidental costs
incurred up to the time of delivery at U.S. ports. The Corporation also pays ocean freight charges, and pays transportation
costs to points of entry other than ports in the case of landlocked countries, where carriers to a specific country are not
available, where ports cannot be used effectively, or where
a substantial savings in costs or time can be effected, and
pays general average contributions arising from ocean transport. In addition, transportation costs from designated points
of entry or ports of entry abroad to storage and distribution
sites and associated storage and distribution costs may be
paid for commodities made available to meet urgent and extraordinary relief requirements. P.L. 480 funds reimburse the
Corporation for all of the cost items authorized above.

The Food Stamp Program is the primary source of nutrition
assistance for low-income Americans.
Some of these funds provide a grant to Puerto Rico in
lieu of the Food Stamp Program which gives the Commonwealth flexibility to administer a nutrition assistance program
tailored to the needs of its low-income households.
Funds in this account are also used to carry out the Emergency Food Assistance Act of 1983 and for food distribution
and administrative expenses for Native Americans under section 4(b) of the Food Stamp Act.
Food Stamp Program costs are not fully predictable. In
the event that actual program needs exceed budget estimates,
the Budget provides a $3 billion contingency reserve. The
Budget also proposes indefinite funding authority which
would make funds available in the last four months of the
fiscal year if program needs exceed the anticipated level.
The Budget also provides temporary transitional benefits
to help elderly households transition from the Commodity
Supplemental Food Program to the Food Stamp Program.

This schedule shows the net effects of three legislative proposals. The Budget proposes to exclude all retirement accounts when determining if a household is eligible for food
stamp benefits. It also proposes to limit Food Stamp categorical eligibility status to households which receive Supplemental Security Income or Temporary Assistance for Needy
Families cash assistance. Finally, the Budget proposes to
allow States to use the National Directory of New Hires to
verify Food Stamp participants’ employment and wage information.
