Why the Impact Collaborative?

eXtension members have the benefit of leveraging our Impact Collaborative program to help guide vision and strategy, support alignment, cultivate community engagement and ownership of projects, establish shared measures across the system, advance policy, and mobilize resources in the diverse program areas of Cooperative Extension locally, regionally, and nationally. In 2019, $690K was awarded in Federal Grants to teams that incubated in the Impact Collaborative. 92% of Cooperative Extension professionals that have experienced the Impact Collaborative recommend it to others.
