We are excited for the Southern Rural Development Center’s project to be featured in the New Technologies for Ag Extension (NTAE) 2022-2023 Yearbook. Our publication, titled 'Building Grantsmanship Capacity,' explores our successful initiative supporting 1890 land-grant university professionals and community members with grant discovery, application, and management.

In 2022-2023, we received funding as a part of the NTAE program, a partnership between USDA NIFA, Oklahoma State University, and the Extension Foundation. This year we have successfully trained five teams of five people each (including at least one 1890 Extension professional, one community member, and one 1890 student) and worked with them to apply real-world grant skills to a specific tangible community need.

The NTAE Yearbook contains our publication, “Building Grantsmanship Capacity,” and a diverse array of initiatives, all exploring the remarkable impact and outcomes of Cooperative Extension projects on human, environmental, and community well-being, youth development, promoting health and equity, and more.
