States are eligible for funds appropriated under this Act according to the following formula: One half of the State allotment will be distributed among the States in the proportion that the value of and income to producers from domestic livestock, poultry, and commercial aquaculture species in each State bears to the total value of and income to producers from domestic livestock, poultry, and commercial aquaculture species in all the States, based on the most current inventory of all cattle, sheep, swine, horses, poultry, and commercial aquaculture species published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The remainder of the State allotment will be distributed among the States in the proportion that the animal health and disease research capacity of the eligible institutions in each State bears to the total animal health and disease research capacity in all the States, as determined by NIFA.

Uses:
Research on animal health and disease of food animals and horses conducted in eligible institutions under the following categories:
(1) Infectious diseases;
(2) internal and external parasites;
(3) noninfectious diseases, toxins, poisons, transportation losses, predators and other hazards;
(4) diseases and parasites of wildlife transmissible to food animals and horses; and

The Secretary is authorized to make such payments in excess of $100,000 on the certificate of the appropriate official of the eligible institution having charge of the animal health and disease research for which such payments are to be made. If any eligible institution certified for receipt of matching funds fails to make available and budget for expenditure for animal health and disease research in any fiscal year sums at least equal to the amount for which it is certified, the difference between the Federal matching funds available and the funds made available to and budgeted for expenditure by the eligible institution shall be reapportioned by the Secretary among other eligible institutions of the same State, if there are any which qualify therefor, and, if there are none, the Secretary shall reapportion such difference among the other States.”
