Extension Research Proposals "Improving SNAP-Ed Programs and Evaluations"

Monday, February 9, 2009

The goal of this funding initiative was to support research projects that would provide direct benefit to the delivery or evaluation of SNAP-Ed programs. The findings and recommendations are being disseminated directly to SNAP-Ed program personnel, and to the larger scientific and policy communities through publication in peer-review journals. A secondary goal was to facilitate the development of pilot projects that can form the basis for larger projects to study effective SNAP-Ed programming, funded by USDA or other sources.

We are pleased to announce the projects that were selected for funding. These grants are funded through the Extension Directors/Administrators SNAP-Ed assessment.
