In an era of financial constraint following the Great Recession, many Extension entities have been forced to make difficult decisions; some have adopted alternative funding strategies whereas others have accepted reductions in service delivery and staffing levels.

The approach and recommendations we detail can be valuable resources for Extension professionals faced with difficult decisions regarding limited resources.
