Dairy Export Incentive Program (DEIP)
The Dairy Export Incentive Program (DEIP) helps exporters of U.S. dairy products meet prevailing world prices for targeted dairy products and destinations. Under the program, the U.S. Department of Agriculture pays cash to exporters as bonuses, allowing them to sell certain U.S. dairy products at prices lower than the exporter's costs of acquiring them. The major objective of the program is to develop export markets for dairy products where U.S. products are not competitive because of the presence of subsidized products from other countries.

The DEIP was announced by USDA on May 15, 1985, and was reauthorized by the Food, Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990; the Uruguay Round Agreements Act of 1995; and the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996. The United States, as part of its World Trade Organization commitments resulting from the Uruguay Round Agreement on Agriculture, has established annual export subsidy ceilings by commodity with respect to maximum permitted quantities effective July 1, 1995, and maximum budgetary expenditures effective October 1, 1995.

REMINDER TO DEIP PARTICIPANTS:  Exporters wishing to apply for a bonus under CCC’s DEIP program are reminded that it is the responsibility of all participants to review, and fully acquaint themselves with, all regulations, Invitations for Offers, Program Announcements, and Notices to Participants relating to the DEIP program.  In addition, exporters are reminded of the following:

 -Per 7 CFR 1494.401 and the applicable Invitation for Offers, exporters must furnish performance security prior to applying to CCC for a bonus;

-Per 7 CFR 1494.301(g) and the applicable Invitation for Offers, exporters who have not yet demonstrated their ability to participate successfully in the DEIP must request bonus payment under “Option B” in their application;

-Per the applicable Invitation for Offers, exporters previously qualified to participate in DEIP must supply their Dun and Bradstreet (DUNS) number to CCC prior to applying for a bonus.
