For the past five years, Americans have experienced a “perfect storm” of slow economic growth, wage and benefit losses, a sluggish housing market, and high unemployment rates. Tough economic times can result in individuals and families living on the financial edge. Topics covered in this 90-minute webinar include a description of the “financial edge” and how people get there by being pushed or pulled; the concept of living “paycheck to paycheck;” low U.S. savings rates; strategies to deal with unemployment; public health insurance; food assistance; energy assistance; telephone assistance; wage garnishment, foreclosure, credit counseling; individual development accounts (IDAs); disaster assistance; and frauds and scams.

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
