Info and Resources for the New Phase of EXCITE Programming

The EXCITE Project had an info-session last week to announce the details of the new phase of funding that will continue to support the work of adult immunization education. This programming opportunity is open to all Land Grant institutions regardless of previous EXCITE participation. This system-wide effort is a model of how Extension can utilize shared resources, lessons learned best practices and a focus on local needs to create a large impact.

As announced last week, this new phase of EXCITE programming will be divided into two phases: Design and Implementation. The purpose of the Design Phase is to award funds to support staff time and prepare deliverables for successful project implementation. This will also include monthly workshops and accompanying office hours to help prepare projects for the next stage. The Design Phase application is now open and will begin to award institutions starting October 1st.

Below find the resources shared from the project info-session, including the presentation slides and everything you need to participate in the Design Phase. Please reach out to the EXCITE team with any questions.



  • Office Hour/ Drop in Q&A -  September 28th, 3:00-4:00 PM ET

  • 1st Design Phase Workshop: Partnership Development and Priority Population-  October 13th 4:00-5:00 PM
