SHARE NOW

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack will make $2.3 billion available for international food aid through the Commodity Credit Corporation.

CCC funds are used to implement specific programs established by Congress and are managed by a board of directors with the secretary of agriculture serving as the chairperson of the board.

The aid was granted following a request made by Senate Agriculture Committee leaders.

USDA says $1.3 billion will be used for the Regional Agricultural Promotion Program and to help specialty crop industries diversify export markets.
