Market Development Cooperator Program: Through MDCP cooperative agreements the Department works with organizations that have export multiplier functions providing technical and financial assistance that these organizations match. Export multiplier organizations compete for a limited number of MDCP awards. Trade associations, state departments of trade and their regional associations, and non-profit industry organizations, including export multiplier organizations such as World Trade Centers, centers for international trade development and small business development centers are eligible to apply for an MDCP award. These export multipliers are particularly effective in reaching small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs). (The program?s eligibility requirements effectively preclude applications from individuals and private companies. See III. Eligibility Information below.) MDCP awards help to underwrite the start-up costs of new export ventures that export multipliers are often reluctant to undertake without Federal Government support. MDCP aims to develop, maintain and expand foreign markets for non-agricultural goods and services produced in the United States and serves to: o Challenge the private sector to think strategically about foreign markets; o Spur private-sector innovation and investment in exporting; and, o Increase the number of U.S. companies, particularly SMEs, taking decisive export actions. As an active partner, ITA will, as appropriate, guide and assist export multipliers in achieving project objectives. ITA encourages export multipliers to propose projects that (1) best meet their industry's market development needs; and (2) leverage the partnership between the export multiplier and ITA.
