U.S. Customs to Allow Private Sector Contributions to Fund Operations

Capitalizing on the innovative ‘559’ Legislation, designed to allow private trade industry entities to supplement U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) efforts to move trade faster while the agency’s budget tightens, CBP and the General Services Administration (GSA), which owns multiple ports of entry around the U.S. where CBP operates, announced the ‘Donation Acceptance Program’ (DAP). The Program allows private entities to submit proposals that would allow them to fund infrastructure, CBP Officer overtime pay, and other operations needed to move cargo and people into the country more efficiently and help drive U.S. economic growth.

As border management authorities around the world continue to face budget challenges, such programs provide an avenue for public-private collaboration that will drive economic growth.

A live Q&A teleconference will be held in early November for interested participants. Check cbp.gov for further details.
