Three multi-state teams awarded NERCRD grants to advance regional collaboration and impact data collection
Three grant proposals have been selected to receive funding through the Northeast Center's "Impacts of Successful Extension and Outreach Programs" award program, which designed to help Northeast Land-Grant University faculty and educators document the impacts of their work while also encouraging collaboration across state lines. Twenty-two people from nine states are participating in the projects. Selection of the funded projects based on the recommendation of a review committee.
A community of practice for data analysis
Do you assist communities in using socio-economic data for decision making? Are you looking for better ways of delivering data to community leaders? Are you willing to share your best practices and resources with others, potentially influencing programming in other states? As access to data is becoming ubiquitous for communities, the role of many Extension and Community Development (CD) professionals has shifted towards helping communities interpret data for use in decision-making. A group of such individuals has formed, and they invite you to join their informal listserv.
