Grant and in-kind assistance to a USA or territories institution of higher education for projects and activities that benefit children and youth who are located on military bases. Funding is intended to create and implement educational programs for military-associated youth. Professional development and technical assistance are provided to the grantee to develop and deliver educational programs for youth on military installations.

The CYFAR 4-H Military Partnership Professional Development and Technical Assistance Program (CMPC-PDTA) has three strategic objectives:

  1. To provide professional development and technical assistance to the Land-grant institutions and Cooperative Extension Systems, in collaboration with other organizations, to ensure continued development and implementation of the 4-H program on military installations. The CMPC-PDTA program, collaboratively through the Extension system will provide the components of professional development and technical assistance in keeping with the CYF AR Guiding Principles.
  2. To support the development of Cooperative Extension's educational 4-H positive youth development programs (in local, often rural communities) for military-connected youth based on identified needs and soundly grounded in research.
  3. To integrate 4-H Military Partnership programming into ongoing Extension programs for children, youth, and families, ensuring that military-connected youth continue to be a part of Extension 4-H programs and have access to resources and educational opportunities.

The following describes the types of projects or grants that are eligible for funding:

  • Project Types. Applicants must propose an extension project. Extension Projects conduct programs and activities that deliver science-based knowledge and informal educational programs to people, enabling them to make practical decisions. Extension Projects may also include related matters such as certification programs, in-service training, client recruitment and services, curriculum development, instructional materials and equipment, and innovative instructional methodologies appropriate to informal educational programs.
  • Grant Types. Applicants must select the appropriate regular grant. Regular Grant supports targeted original scientific Research, Education/Teaching, Extension, or Integrated Projects. An eligible, individual institution, independent branch campus, or branch institution of a State system may submit a grant application for project activities to be undertaken principally on behalf of its own students or faculty and to be managed primarily by its own personnel. The applicant executes the project without the requirement of sharing grant funds with other project partners.
