SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The final rule for AILFP was published on June 8, 2000, with an initial budget of $12.5 million. This funding was nearly exhausted by January 2001. The Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2001 (2001 Act) provided additional funding of $11.9 million to continue the AILFP.

The 2001 Act authorized AILFP funding only for those AILFP contracts and requests to extend feeding periods for existing AILFP contracts that were approved by the Deputy Administrator for Farm Programs (DAFP) no later than September 30, 2001. As a result of this statutory provision, AILFP funding is not available for any AILFP contract or request to extend a feeding period for an existing AILFP contract not submitted and approved by DAFP by September 30, 2001. The program is terminated.
