The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is announcing the availability of up to $3,500,000 in cooperative agreement funding to further develop and implement chronic wasting disease (CWD) management and response activities, including surveillance and testing as part of an overall management plan. Funds may also be provided to develop and evaluate techniques and strategies for controlling CWD. This is an APHIS program, jointly administered by Wildlife Services (WS) and Veterinary Services (VS); VS focuses on regulatory aspects of captive cervids and WS focuses on wildlife damage management involving wild deer. Project selection and funding decisions will be collaboratively made to balance interests of the wild and captive cervid sectors. APHIS is striving for roughly equal funding for the two sectors.
