Who can benefit...

Foreign Trade Zone's (FTZ) are required to operate under public utility principles, providing access to zone procedures on a nondiscriminatory basis to businesses and manufacturers. Zone procedures are available at any of the operating FTZ's, subject to customs requirements, a review process to determine that manufacturing activity is in the public interest, and the specific requirements of the local zone project.

About this section:

This section lists the ultimate beneficiaries of a program, the criteria they must satisfy and who specifically is not eligible. The applicant and beneficiary will generally be the same for programs that provide assistance directly from a Federal agency. However, financial assistance that passes through State or local governments will have different applicants and beneficiaries since the assistance is transmitted to private sector beneficiaries who are not obligated to request or apply for the assistance.
