Stakeholder Comments for Animal Health
The animal health component of NIFA involves animal health, protection, and biosecurity. To best serve public needs, and in accordance with relevant legislation1, we rely on input and feedback from stakeholders in setting program priorities that align with USDA’s strategic plan and to determine best use of limited resources. Please use our Animal Health Stakeholder Comment Form to tell us what you believe are the top priorities in animal health.2 Your input will be most meaningful for us if you explain how your priorities are connected to national needs, how they are related to existing initiatives, and their potential impacts on the quality of research, education, and extension activities.
To view past sources of stakeholder input, upcoming stakeholder input-related events, and to provide general comments on agency activities, see our Stakeholder Input page.
