CYFAR Professional Development and Technical Assistance Application Instructions

The CYFAR Professional Development and Technical Assistance grant program serves to capitalize on the existing national network of expertise found throughout the Cooperative Extension system including the federal partner USDA NIFA as well as faculty from the land-grant university departments of 4-H Youth Development, Family and Consumer Sciences, Community Development and Agriculture and Natural Resources. Partnering universities build connections, competency and capacity to work collaboratively to assist communities to develop and sustain holistic programs for children, youth and families at-risk who are under-served and under-represented.

The purpose of the CYFAR Professional Development and Technical Assistance (CYFAR-PDTA) grant is to provide for professional development and technical assistance to Sustainable Community Projects (SCPs) to ensure continued development and implementation of the CYFAR Sustainable Community program. CYFAR-PDTA collaboratively through the Extension system will provide the components of programming, evaluation, technology and technical assistance.
