Animal Health and Disease Research Fund (Public Law 95–113, Section 1433) is a national program which provides formula funds for animal health research in states that conduct relevant projects. Research programs are used to promote the general welfare through improved health and productivity of domestic livestock, poultry, aquatic animals, and other income–producing animals. Oregon AES typically receives $70,000 to $130,000 each year, depending on previous years’ capacity to conduct animal health and disease related research. The timing of funding release depends upon the timing of Congressional appropriations to USDA.
OAES releases a Request for Proposals in winter or early spring. If a project is approved for funding, a project record will be required for the national REEport database. Further, an ACUP proposal must have been approved before the budget index can be provided.
