Extension is cooperatively funded by four major funding partners: the United States Department of Agriculture, the state of Michigan, local county government, and other cooperating agencies. Federal funding links Extension to national trends and issues affecting Michigan communities. State funding ensures that the needs of Michigan citizens are being met. Local funding means that Extension is in place to deal with the needs and issues in every county. Extension programs are very cost effective. They involve volunteers and community leaders who bring special expertise and knowledge to Extension programing to address our community's needs.
