USDA Announces $2.8 Million to Combat Chronic Wasting Disease
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/23/2020

The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is providing nearly $2.8 million to 17 states and one tribe to conduct research and management activities to combat Chronic Wasting Disease.

Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Greg Ibach says the agency is committed to protecting agriculture and wildlife across the country, and slowing the spread of CWD across agricultural and wildlife landscapes.

"This is a prime example of Federal, State and Tribal partners working together to develop solutions to extremely challenging problems, and these cooperative agreements will help us control the disease and protect our natural resources," Ibach said.

In addition to Wisconsin, other states sharing in the grant funding include Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New York, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

These funds will allow these partners to further develop and implement CWD management, response, and research activities, including surveillance and testing. APHIS gave priority to states and tribes in states that have detected CWD and have a CWD monitoring and control program or that propose to create a control program.
