New resource for documenting evidence of Extension impacts (in case you missed it)

Posted: August 24, 2016

In case you missed the announcement in our June newsletter, here's a reminder that the "Impact Indicators Tips Booklet" is now available on the Northeast Center website. Written by George Morse, Charles French, and Scott Chazdon, the 40-page booklet explores practical and credible methods for using the "but for" rule to document Extension Community Development Impacts.

The booklet (available here) describes 23 indicators for community development programs, including:

  • number of jobs retained
  • number of business plans developed
  • dollar value of grants leveraged by the community

The authors are members of the Northeast Center's Learning Circle on Impact Indicators. For more information about the Center's efforts to evaluate the community, regional, and economic development programs in the region, visit:
