APHIS Extends Deadline for Opportunity for Partners to Develop Antimicrobial Resistance Dashboards to Protect Animal and Public Health

Due to upcoming maintenance on the Grants.gov site, the U.S Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is extending the deadline for partners to submit applications to collaborate on the development of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) dashboards. Applicants now have until 11:59 p.m. EST on May 28, 2024 to submit applications.

The funding opportunity announcement, including application instructions and additional information, is available on the APHIS website. Applicants can also find information on the ezFedGrants website or Grants.gov by searching AMR, Antimicrobial Resistance, or Funding Opportunity Number USDA-APHIS-10025-VSSP0000-24-0010.

APHIS announced the open period for this opportunity on March 19, 2024.  These dashboards provide stakeholders with critical data to address AMR, a growing global health threat. APHIS will provide up to $3 million dollars for these efforts in 2024.

APHIS is actively engaged in activities to better understand AMR patterns and develop effective mitigation strategies. The agency collaborates with a diverse network of partners, including state and federal agencies, Tribal entities, academic institutions, and industry stakeholders, to tackle the AMR challenge collectively.
