The Extension mission is supported by many, and as a result, our efforts are funded a wide variety of ways. For over a century, Ohio’s Extension efforts have been made possible by a cooperative arrangement involving federal, state, and local funding (historically county-based). More recently, these three funding sources have been joined by another funding source which has become an ever-increasing share of the total – called “Other”.
I have heard many of you say you like your work because every day is different. That holds true for me too since I get to do this work wearing two different hats.

Both play a part in helping with faculty and A&P promotion.
