Depending on the type of project, there is up to $60K in Fellowships available, and all projects receive support from Extension Foundation Catalysts, Coaches, and Key Informants. Catalysts are experienced CES Administrators that provide mentorship and guidance to projects, and Key Informants have subject matter expertise across areas such as publishing, evaluation, partner development, leadership and team development, project management, marketing, and more. Projects have access to these resources to advance their projects.

Through NTAE, the Extension Foundation provides a set of services most projects rarely have access to.  The services that create deeper impact, greater leverage for impact and greater sustainability for the project.  These services in collaboration with the great ideas and planned projects make for extended successes and sustainability of projects.
