National Animal Disease Preparedness and Response Program
The 2018 Farm Bill established the National Animal Disease Preparedness and Response Program to boost the nation’s efforts to keep high-consequence animal diseases from entering and spreading in the United States. This program allows APHIS to collaborate with animal health partners throughout the nation to implement high-value projects that enhance prevention, preparedness, detection, and response to the most damaging emerging and foreign animal diseases that threaten U.S. agriculture. The National Animal Disease Preparedness and Response Program is one of three programs that are supported through the 2018 Farm Bill Section 12101,
