CBP Makes Donation Assistance Program Selections to Enhance U.S. Trade Flow

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the General Services Administration (GSA) have accepted three new proposals for port of entry infrastructure and technology projects under the ‘Donation Assistance Program’ (DAP).

The city of Donna, TX seeks to build new inspection facilities and install technologies to help inspect inbound vehicles at the Donna-Rio Bravo Port of Entry while the city of Pharr, TX aims to construct a new cold inspection facility and an agricultural inspection training and development facility at the Pharr POE. Red Hook Terminals pledged to donate a perforating machine to the Port of Freeport in Texas.

The ‘559 DAP’ law, a true example of public-private partnership, was signed in 2014.  DAP allows donors, such as private or local government entities, to make investments that will enhance the flow of trade and travel at U.S. borders, stimulating both the local and greater U.S. economy.

Any eligible entity seeking to submit a proposal to the DAP may contact CT Strategies for assistance in the process.
