Funding Available to Support Projects that Address Huanglongbing (Citrus Greening)

The Huanglongbing Multi-Agency Coordination group (HLB MAC) is accepting suggestions until November 1, 2018, for projects that will help develop near-term solutions for citrus producers facing huanglongbing (HLB, also known as citrus greening).  HLB MAC is focused on funding projects that have the greatest potential to keep HLB out of citrus that is currently free of the disease, help growers produce citrus under high HLB disease pressure, and remediate the impact of HLB.

Interested stakeholders are invited to submit project suggestions three times a year (by November 1, February 1, and June 1) as resources are available. All projects must be no more than 24 months in duration and must address one of the HLB MAC goal areas.

To submit a project for consideration, please complete the suggestion template https://www.aphis.usda.gov/plant_health/downloads/hlb-mac-suggestion-template.pdf and email it to HLBMACgroup@aphis.usda.gov no later than November 1, 2018. To learn more about the HLB MAC, previously funded projects, or the current call for project suggestions, please visit USDA’s HLB MAC website.
