SNAP-Ed Plan for 2015 Submitted and 2014 EFNEP Budget Approved

As I prepare this blog post, the SNAP-Ed plan for 2015 has just been completed and submitted to Sponsor Project Administration. Preparation of the plan was led by Renee Obrecht-Como and Trina Barno along with the Extension grant unit (Dianne Sivald, Liz Pukinis and Kerry Marsolek) and Mary Caskey, associate program director overseeing SNAP Education. The team worked diligently over the last six weeks pulling together the plan. Please join me in saying a big "thank you."

We also received word from the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) at U.S. Department of Agriculture that the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program budget of $1,060,098 was approved for the current year of FY 2014. Although we are deep into planning for FY 2015 and at the end of FY 2014, EFNEP funding tends to lag behind coming late in the fiscal year. We always welcome the funds no matter when we receive them! This funding is what supports the great team that won the Program Showcase award at our conference.
