Public-Private Partnerships

Record increases in passenger and cargo volumes are outpacing CBP’s personnel and infrastructure resources, resulting in increased passenger wait times and cargo backups.

To address these challenges, CBP is pursuing public-private partnerships in the form of the Reimbursable Services Program and the Donations Acceptance Program. As authorized under Sections 481 and 482 of the Homeland Security Act, 2002, as amended by the Cross-Border Trade Enhancement Act, 2016, these programs allow CBP and our stakeholders to enter into agreements to address these challenges.
