There is a $75 million grant program at APHIS called the “Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention” that has not been well utilized by our members. The program is also referred to as the Farm Bill Section 10007 program, which provides funding to strengthen the nation’s infrastructure for pest detection and surveillance, identification, and threat mitigation.

The FY 2018 open period will last six weeks from July 10, 2017 through August 18, 2017. Awards are expected to be made in December 2017.
