2019 Funding Opportunity

In 2019, APHIS will make available up to $10 million in funding to be divided between NADPRP and the National Animal Health Laboratory Network programs. NADPRP funding will support multiple training and exercise projects that will help us enhance our existing disease emergency preparedness and response efforts.
