USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is offering up to $24.5 million in funds for projects that can advance animal disease preparedness and response through its Farm Bill animal health programs. APHIS is seeking project proposals for the National Animal Disease Preparedness and Response Program (NADPRP) and the National Animal Health Laboratory Network (NAHLN), USDA reports.

 

USDA is also announcing its next round of purchases for the National Animal Vaccine and Veterinary Countermeasures Bank (NAVVCB). The 2018 Farm Bill provided funding for these programs as part of an overall strategy to help prevent animal pests and diseases from entering the U.S. and reduce the spread and impact of potential disease incursions through advance planning and preparedness, USDA said. Projects selected for funding will be awarded in FY 2023.

 

NADPRP proposals must be submitted by 11:59 PM EDT on September 9,  and NAHLN proposals must be submitted on October 1.
