United States of America - LHCA to receive funding

Funding will help LHCA promote leather as a sustainable material.

The Leather and Hide Council of America (LHCA) has confirmed that it will receive funding of $5.5 million from the US Department of Agriculture’s regional agricultural promotion programme (#RAPP) to help fund its support of the US producers of hides and leather. By Leatherbiz.

LHCA president, Kerry Brozyna, said the organisation had been working for more than 100 years to support the US hide, skin and leather sectors. He said the RAPP funding would help LHCA “expand global demand for leather products and increase US exports by protecting and promoting the benefits of leather as a sustainable material”.
