Aligning and Elevating University-Based Low-Income Nutrition Education through the Land-Grant University Cooperative Extension System report was prepared as part of a project funded by NIFA’s Institute of Food Safety and Nutrition in response to the request of two former ECOP Chairs, Douglas Steele and Daryl Buccholz, to facilitate increased visibility and improved alignment of EFNEP and SNAP-Ed through the Land-Grant University Cooperative Extension System.  Recent developments in these programs make this report very timely.  Recommendations are given for universities, the land-grant university system, and federal/national partners. The report may be found at  http://www.nifa.usda.gov/nea/food/efnep/pdf/align_elevate_report.pdf.  

A short 30 minute webinar was presented this past June to assist in how to use the report.  It is a broad perspective of the report’s recommendations and findings. The recording may be accessed at http://uc-d.adobeconnect.com/p422zqdj4jf/.
