Agricultural Marketing Service July 26, 2021 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Administering the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program
Document Number: 2021-15780
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-07-26
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This final rule removes the regulations pertaining to the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP). The regulations, which were established in 2006 as a matter of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) policy, are duplicative of and in conflict with the recent revisions to the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Office of Federal Financial Management's Guidance for Grants and Agreements. Consequently, the SCBGP-specific regulations are no longer needed. The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is removing the obsolete regulations in order to align its grant programs with OMB requirements and implement the programs efficiently. AMS will continue to administer SCBGP according to the OMB regulations.
