USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced this week more than $16.3 million in grants to 64 partner-based projects to strengthen programs that protect animal health. Projects include those focused on enhancing vaccine distribution plans and supporting animal movement decisions in high-consequence animal disease outbreaks. Programs also include outreach and education on animal disease prevention and preparedness and point-of-care diagnostic tests to rapidly detect foreign animal diseases. The announcement marks the third year APHIS is providing funding within the Farm Bill.
Last year, $14.4 million was approved to fund 76 projects.
