Cooperative Extension is a non-formal U.S. educational program, established in 1914, designed to help people use research-based knowledge to improve their lives. In most states, educational offerings include agriculture; food, financial, and/or family issues; the environment; community economic development; and 4-H youth programs. Funding is provided by the federal government in cooperation with state, county, and/or city governments and land-grant universities.



  • #30DaysofSavings Social Media Project: Cooperative Extension received a grant from the Consumer Federation of America to promote savings and the America Saves Week 2019. The goal of this project is to encourage people to enroll in America Saves and learn about saving through a 30-day-Twitter “conversation” using #30DaysofSavings. A different question about saving will be asked each day from February 1 to March 2. People also will be encouraged to complete the 30-day $100 Savings Challenge.
