USDA Capacity: Animal Health and Disease Research Program

The USDA dedicates funding to increase animal health and disease reseach activities at accredited public or private veterinary schools or colleges through the Animal Health and Disease Research (AHDR) formula or capacity program.  The amount of funds provided to each institution is determined by statutorily defined formulas, including variables such as the rural population, number of farms, and poverty. University leaders decide the specific projects that will be supported by an institution’s capacity grant allotment, which must be aligned with NIFA-approved plans of work.  ISU CVM typically receives enough funding to support 5-7 seed grant projects fulfilling these criteria.
