Multistate Research Groups in the Family & Consumer Sciences

The mission of the multistate research program is to enable research on high-priority topics among the State Agricultural Experiment Stations (SAES) in partnership with USDA/NIFA, other research institutions and agencies, and with the Cooperative Extension Service (CES). In this way, technological opportunities and complex problem solving activities which are beyond the scope of a single SAES, can be approached in a more efficient and comprehensive way. The National Information Management & Support System (NIMSS) is a web-based application that allows participants of Multistate Research Projects and Activities to submit proposals and reports online.

Multistate research activities overseen by the NIFA Division of Family & Consumer Sciences and focusing on issues of Family Well-Being and Community Vitality include:
