Info Session for the NEW EXCITE Funding Opportunity

Register HERE for our September 22, 2022 Project Info Session

The EXCITE national program team is happy to announce the EXCITE program is continuing! The CDC, NIFA, and the Extension Foundation will support projects in our LGU Cooperative Extension communities to address adult immunization education. This opportunity is open to all Land Grant institutions regardless of previous EXCITE participation.

As a reminder, EXCITE is a nationwide response by U.S. Cooperative Extension made possible through an interagency agreement between USDA-NIFA and the CDC. The CDC chose Cooperative Extension as a partner in immunization education because of the system's ability to collaborate with partners, deliver comprehensive educational programming, and is seen as a trusted messenger when sharing science-based information.

The next phase of EXCITE will feature a Design Phase with monthly workshops and accompanying office hours to help prepare projects for implementation.
For your planning, here are the scheduled events in 2022:

  • Project Intro Session - September 22nd 2022, at 3:00 PM ET
    Office Hour - September 28th 2022, 3:00-4:00 PM ET
