Wednesday, November 03rd, 2021

National 4-H Council is pleased to announce that the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has renewed its partnership with 4-H and Cooperative Extension with a commitment of an additional $5 million to support the advancement of health equity and well-being across the nation. This two-year investment will build upon prior efforts to catalyze change at the community-level by creating system level supports that facilitate the implementation of the recommendations contained in Cooperative Extension’s National Framework for Health Equity and Well-Being. Special attention will be given to system-wide interventions that amplify the role of young people in addressing health-related issues, advance Cooperative Extension’s work to addressing barriers to life-long health, and position equitable development as a strategy for creating communities in which all people thrive.
