New Technologies for Agriculture Extension (NTAE) Competitive Grants Program provides funding to increase the capacity of the Cooperative Extension System (CES) to adopt new and innovative technology applications for delivering science-based educational resources from land-grant and other partner institutions about matters of high importance to the general public. 

The NTAE Program supports state of the art technology and software applications, high quality leadership training for an exceptional CES workforce, comprehensive evaluation, communications, and marketing activities that promote governance, collaboration and organization, a toolkit of evidence-based delivery models, and an entrepreneurial resource base. NTAE prioritizes the use of digital tools and national programming strategies to increase collaboration in priority research areas across the Land Grant University and Cooperative Extension Systems.
