At the North Central Region Water Network, we are dedicated to enhancing connectivity and learning, sharing the latest Extension research and knowledge across the region, strengthening the resource base for Extension education, and coordinating initiatives with measurable short and long term impacts.
Over the last three years Network initiatives and other projects leveraging Network resources have generated over $5.4 million in additional funds for extension in the North Central Region. Join us on our journey to turn science into success!
This fall, the North Central Region Water Network and the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development (NCRCRD) are partnering to address the challenges for agriculture and communities posed by devastating recurring floods. We are accepting applications for multi-state projects that result in a collaborative white paper or report that documents current extension responses to long-term flood planning and preparation, assesses current flood planning and preparedness needs, documents gaps in extension programming and resources, and develops recommendations for strengthening extension support of long-term flood planning and prevention. The application deadline for this RFA has been extended until Friday, December 20, 2019 at 5pm CT. Learn more and view the request for applications.
