Under the authority of the Plant Protection Act (PPA) Section 7721, the Plant Protection Act Section 7721 Funding is through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). APHIS provides funding through the Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program (PPDMDPP) and the National Clean Plant Network (NCPN) Programs. APHIS annually makes funds available to state governments, universities, non-profit institutions, industry, and tribal nations to support projects that protect specialty crops, other agricultural production, nursery systems, forestry, and other natural resources from harmful and exotic plant pests and pathogens. It authorizes permanent funding for the National Clean Plant Network (NCPN) and the Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program (PPDMDPP), $75 million per year in FY 2018 and beyond, with at least $5 million of the funding to support NCPN annually.

The Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program MDPP projects are organized around six goal areas: enhancing plant pest/disease analysis and survey; targeting domestic inspection activities at vulnerable points in the safeguarding continuum; increasing identification capacity and enhancing and strengthening pest detection technology; safeguarding nursery production; conducting outreach and education; and enhancing mitigation and rapid response capabilities.
