Veterinary Services Shortage Situations Map

The designated Veterinarian Shortage Situations map contains all shortage situation designations for a given fiscal year (FY) application cycle. All states shaded in blue have at least one designated shortage area. Shortage situations appear in the table below the map. Additional details for each shortage situation can be found by clicking on the nomination form PDF or the Shortage ID code of the area of interest. Previous years' designations can be found by selecting the year of interest in the FY filter (data is not currently available for all program years).
