Trade Adjustment Assistance
AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.
The Administrator, Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), today accepted a
petition filed by the National Grape Cooperative Association representing
Washington Concord juice grape producers for trade
adjustment assistance. The Administrator will
determine within 40 days whether or not increasing grape juice, not from
concentrate, imports contributed importantly to a decline in domestic producer
prices of 20 percent or more during the marketing period beginning August 1,
2004, and ending July 31, 2005. If the determination is positive, all producers
who produce and market their Concord juice grapes in Washington will be eligible
to apply to the Farm Service Agency for no cost technical assistance
and for adjustment assistance payments.
