Welcome to the Extension Grants information page!

Sources of external funding have become increasingly important in funding our programs, and we are here to offer help in targeting the best grant opportunities to fit your needs.

Each quarter, Laura Waters, Extension Grant Coordinator, will be publishing an Extension Grant E-news which will include a "Grant Announcement" section with upcoming grant opportunities. Monthly emails will also be sent out featuring upcoming grant opportunities. We will continue to have resources available here on our website.


Extension Resources:
Extension Grant E-news (Fall 2015): Extension Grants e-News provides readers with information on current and reoccuring grant announcements, Extension grant success stories, and grant tips. Editions are published quarterly. (Archives are available in the bottom right hand corner of this page.)
