The CCC will also use its Charter Act authority for a Trade Promotion Program administered by the Foreign Agriculture Service "in conjunction with the private sector to assist in developing new export markets for our farm products." As further elaborated in the August 27, 2018 announcement, "The ATP will provide cost-share assistance to eligible U.S. organizations for activities such as consumer advertising, public relations, point-of-sale demonstrations, participation in trade fairs and exhibits, market research, and technical assistance. Applications for the ATP will be accepted until November 2, 2018 or until funding is exhausted. Funding should be allocated to eligible participants in early 2019. The ATP is meant to help all sectors of U.S. agriculture, including fish and forest product producers, mainly through partnerships with non-profit national and regional organizations." The USDA allocated $200,000,000 for these activities. 

The CCC further elaborated on these plans by publishing in the August 30, 2018 Federal Register a rule to implement the Agricultural Trade Promotion Program (ATP). The rule makes no explicit reference to the larger, retaliatory environment in which the program is being established, apart from observing that the program will "help U.S. organizations that promote the export of U.S. agricultural commodities adjust to changes in export markets due to recent trade disruptions by providing funding to modify promotional efforts in disrupted markets and to increase promotional efforts in undisrupted markets." It observes that the ATP will "provid[e] assistance to U.S. agricultural industries to conduct activities that promote U.S. agricultural commodities in foreign markets for commodities impacted by tariffs, including activities that address existing or potential non-tariff barriers to trade." The rule specifies eligibility requirements, activities eligible for reimbursement, contribution requirements, and application procedures for the ATP.
