This program seeks to continue the Land Grants mission of inclusion--providing education and research-based knowledge to those who might not otherwise receive it.

    Main Priorities Include:
    • Tribal Youth and 4-H
    • Indian Farmer and Rancher Productivity and Management
    • Indian Community Development:
      • Economic and Workforce Development
      • Food Systems, Farm and Community Markets
      • Natural Resource Conservation and Adaptation to Environmental Changes
      • Human Nutrition and Reduction of Childhood and Adolescent Obesity
      • Indian Cultural and Language Preservation
    Effective Extension involves identifying and attracting funds and resources to support an ever changing and growing portfolio of activities in response to identified community needs. In consequence of this, it is understood that applicants will work towards a comprehensive Extension plan and engage in both direct and indirect activities in support of their proposed programs. Examples of direct programs activities include, but are not limited to, needs assessments, educational workshops, site visits, producer demonstration projects and cultural learning events. Indirect activities might include, but are not limited to, extending partnerships, expanding communication networks and acquiring additional resources in support of the overall goals and objectives of the proposed project.

    Project Types
    Single Function Extension Programs: To conduct programs and activities that deliver science based knowledge and informal educational programs to people, enabling them to make practical decisions. Program delivery must be community-based. Extension Projects may include related matters such as certification programs, in-service training, client recruitment and services, curriculum development, instructional materials and equipment, and innovative instructional methodologies appropriate to informal educational programs.

    Programs should lead to measurable, documented changes in learning, actions, or conditions in an identified audience or stakeholder group. Programs should incorporate a wide range of relevant research as well as best practices for reaching diverse and traditional communities.
