FOST Trust Funds (TF)



Trust Fund Overview 

Trust Fund (TF) accounts are monetary accounts in which funds are placed in the custody of a trustee by a party (the trustor or cooperator) to be administered by APHIS (the trustee) for the trustor's benefit.


APHIS TF accounts have treasury authority under treasury symbol 12X8226. APHIS collects deposits for each account, which are later disbursed in accordance with services provided by APHIS. TFs are full cost recovery accounts, meaning that all costs incurred by APHIS pertaining to a TF account, must be funded by the TF cooperator. Many of these services provided by APHIS relate to inspection of importing produce, plants, or animals into the United States.
