Chronic Wasting Disease Management and Response Funding Opportunities

Last Modified: Marzo 28, 2024

APHIS provides millions of dollars each year to State and Tribal governments, universities, and others to control chronic wasting disease (CWD) in wild and farmed cervids, such as deer and elk.

Funded projects address CWD research, management, and response activities. They support one or more priorities:

  • Improving management of CWD-affected farmed and wild cervid populations
  • Improving management of CWD-affected areas or premises
  • Researching amplification assays and other new test methods
  • Researching the application of or implementing a whole genome predictive genetics CWD management plan for farmed cervid herds
  • Developing and delivering educational materials or programs
