The objective of the MEAS program is to fund analysis and pilot projects, training, and program and institutional design work to strengthen rural extension and advisory services.

The agreement provides for additional funding through USAID Associate Awards to carry out extension programs, implement major strengthening activities, or expand training and technical assistance.

Program activities are expected to be demand-driven, responsive to country specific USAID Mission and partner needs.


We look forward to communicating with you!
