New Technologies for Ag Extension Program: The purpose of the New Technologies for Ag Extension Program (NTAE) is to increase the capacity of each State to contribute expertise and content to the development of eXtension, a national web-based information and education delivery system that provides direct access to science-based educational resources from land-grant and other partner institutions about subjects of high importance to the general public. This initiative will dramatically change how the Cooperative Extension Service (CES) does business with its customers.In FY 2006, through a cooperative agreement, Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service plans to support partial deployment of eXtension and enable a technology-conscious nation to make use of the valuable information and education that the CES has to offer. NTAE funds will be designed to complement, enhance, and accelerate the implementation of eXtension by building, enhancing, and maintaining the eXtension infrastructure, including the hardware, software, staffing, training, business agreements, and evaluation activities. The successful applicant will work within the context of the eXtension Business Case and the 2005-2007 eXtension Long-Range Implementation Plan (available at http://about.extension.org/wiki/Planning) and meet the NTAE objectives stated in the full request for applications.
