Grant Description
USDA initiated implementation of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) in 2004. The Departments first priority with the initial funding in fiscal year (FY) 2004 was to have the components of the national premises registration system in place in every State by July 2005. With this accomplished, the priority has been to promote voluntary NAIS participation by focusing on the premises registration component. As of January 22, 2007, over 350,000 premises have been registered, or twenty-five percent of the estimated number nationwide. Funding through this announcement will be provided to non-profit industry organizations, 1890 Historically Black Colleges and Universities, 1994 Tribal Land-Grant Colleges and Universities, or Tribal organizations to support the continued registration of premises through existing State and Tribal Premises Registration systems. The NAIS is an industry-State-Federal partnership. In response to stakeholder input, on October 31, 2006, USDA unveiled an updated, uniform educational message for all individuals, businesses, and organizations that focuses on the benefit of the NAIS to producers. Applications for this performance-based, cooperative agreement funding must include a plan for education and outreach, including effective use of existing outreach materials and resources of the Cooperator and/or other existing resources such as cooperative extension, National and State industry organizations, to stakeholders at all levels within the targeted geographic area defined in the applicants proposal.Applications must present well-defined, measurable outcomes specific to new premises registered as a result of their efforts. Total allocation of funding will be dependent upon achieving projected results with an assessment mid-way through the cooperative agreement period. The cooperative agreement period will be for 12 months, initiated on the final date of the signing of the Notice of Award. This funding opportunity does NOT include funds for conducting pilot projects to develop solutions for animal identification and/or collecting animal movement data. Similarly, funds are not to be used for the purchase of animal identification devices or the development, support, or maintenance of information systems. Cooperators will provide completed premises registration applications and will submit them, with the consent of the producer, to the appropriate States/Tribes/Territories for their administration. The work plan must describe in detail the resources needed, training required, if any, and timelines for achieving measurable outcomes.
