Who We Are

The Cooperative Extension Service is nationwide and was established by the Smith-Lever Act of 1914. It is a partnership between state land grant universities, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the county governments throughout the nation. All of these groups share in the planning, financing, and operation of extension programs. In Florida, the Cooperative Extension Service is administered by the University of Florida.

Functions

The Monroe County Board of County Commissioners and the University of Florida have shared a productive county / state / federal partnership through the cooperation with Extension Services for over 35 years. The primary mission of Monroe County Extension Services is to disseminate and encourage the application of research-generated knowledge.
