Extension Risk Management Education

Managing risk drives success!"

Educating America’s farmers and ranchers to manage the unique risks of producing food for the world’s table.


Funding Results

Extension Risk Management Education is delivered through four regional centers that provide grant funding and leadership within their regions.

Projects are producer-focused, results-based and encourage public-private partnerships.   Funded projects must identify targeted results that will help producers manage risk and then describe how the project will measure those results.

Extension Risk Management Education has funded innovative programs that have generated tangible results for producers in every state.  Commitment to funding results, providing transparent accountability, and encouraging collaboration allow you to view the accomplishments of all funded projects on this website.
