Dr. Dawn Mellion Program Director

On behalf of the Extension Foundation and our partner USDA-NIFA, I want to welcome you to this very exciting time. NextGen is a game changer for American Agriculture.

In the fall of 2022, the Extension Foundation entered into an agreement with USDA-NIFA to serve as the Technical Service Provider for this opportunity. Previously, all eligible institutions were invited to utilize Extension Foundation services for assistance with their proposals. Now that projects have been awarded, the Extension Foundation will continue to serve as a Technical Advisor to assist projects with their implementation, professional development and related needs.

There is no cost in using the Extension Foundation’s technical services provided to you.

I would like to congratulate you on your recent award through the NextGen funding opportunity. We look forward to continuing to serve you and being a partner in your success. 

My Best,

Dawn Mellion, Ph.D
Program Director
Extension Foundation
