We have had many calls requesting information on the Seafood Trade Relief Program (STRP). Though we would like to help, the attached link has the application and other information. The USDA Farm Service Agency in Bangor may also be contacted for more information or assistance with completing the application; their contact number is 947-3555 Ext. 2.
The STRP is part of a relief strategy to support fishermen and other producers while the administration continues to work on free, fair and reciprocal trade deals to open more markets to help American farmers compete globally. The STRP is not a first-come, first-served program. Sign-up is from September 14 to December 14, 2020.
