The NAHLN is a coordinated State/Federal diagnostic lab network for rapid recognition, identification, and response to routine and/or emerging disease and emergencies.
 
APHIS and NIFA currently cooperate with 58 laboratories in 43 states.Of these 58 laboratories, only the original 12 core labs receive federal support of $300,000 each per year (less than 6% of the average cost to operate adiagnostic lab). Sixteen other member labs receive only $50,000 each per year (1 percent of the average cost to operate a lab) for ITand other technical systems.
