ASMI Annual Report_2014

section iii funding challenges The USDA Market Access Program (MAP) allocation to ASMI for FY2014 was reduced to $4.1 million ($4.5 million was requested for FY2014 and $4.3 million was received in FY2012). FY2015 funding levels are subject to the political actions of the federal administration and Congress. It is possible that the Farm Bill (under which MAP is funded) may not be re- authorized. This would leave ASMI seeking international marketing program funding source elsewhere. Export markets are critical to the Alaska seafood industry, as they account for roughly two- thirds of all total sales. Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute 2014 Annual Report 11
