USDA APHIS Announces Tribal Funding Opportunity Webinar on FY25 Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program

USDA Aphis has announced three webinars for the Tribal funding opportunity “FY25 Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention
Program” at 1:00 pm ET. : June 17, 2024,  June 21, 2024, and July 08, 2024.

“During the webinar we will discuss the funding opportunity and how to write a suggestion for funding consideration.  Under the authority of the Plant Protection Act Section 7721 (PPA 7721), USDA  APHIS provides funding through the Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program and the National Clean Plant Network (NCPN) Program. Annually APHIS has funds available to state and federal agencies, Tribal nations, colleges and universities, non-profit organizations, and industry to support projects that protect specialty crops, other agricultural production, nursery systems, forestry, and other natural resources, from harmful and invasive plant pests and pathogens. In FY24, APHIS allocated $70.725 million to support 374 projects under PPA
7721, this includes 12 projects submitted by Tribal Nations or organizations, to strengthen the nation’s infrastructure for pest detection and surveillance, identification, threat mitigation, and safeguard the nursery production system. For FY25, APHIS will set aside up to $4 million in PPA 7721 funding to support Tribes, Tribal organizations and universities, and minority-affiliated organizations. The APHIS Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program provides funding to help safeguard against, detect, and respond to invasive plant pests and diseases. APHIS worked with other governmental and non-governmental stakeholders, industry organizations, the National Plant Board,  State departments of agriculture, and Tribal organizations to develop the FY25 Implementation Plan.”
