Grant Opportunity: Supporting Animal Health and Food Safety in Ukraine
Among the many consequences of Russia’s attack on Ukraine is an increased risk to animal health and food safety due to weakened monitoring, testing, and control systems. In response, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service is offering a grant opportunity to provide technical assistance to Ukrainian agricultural producers, focusing on the detection and mitigation of animal diseases and prevention of their introduction into the food supply. The work will be conducted in coordination with FAS staff in Kyiv and Washington.
This work will support the recent Memorandum of Understanding between USDA and Ukraine's Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food to enhance coordination between the U.S. and Ukrainian agri-food sectors, sharing information and expertise and building a strategic partnership to address food security.
The application deadline is August 19, 2022. Complete information is available at: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=342482
