Community & Economic Vitality (CEV) programs help build the capacity of individuals, families, local leaders, and communities to direct their own futures as they negotiate changes in economic structures, demographics, communication technologies and other challenges and opportunities that affect communities as well as help people incorporate sound financial management strategies in their daily lives, discover new economic opportunities, develop successful agricultural and non-agricultural enterprises, take advantage of new and consumer-driven markets, and understand the implication of public policy on these and other related activities.

groceryFamily Economics & Resource Management: Educational programs that deal with personal financial and household management can empower individuals and families to realize increased prosperity, self-sufficiency and sustainability. Programs offered deal with such topics as budgeting, savings plans, stretching resources, using credit wisely, consumer rights, home organization, and identity theft prevention.

The Balance Sheet  is a quarterly newsletter produced by Cornell Cooperative Extension's Family Economics and Resource Management (FERM) Program Work Team to keep consumers informed of timely family economics and resource management topics. The Winter 2017 edition contains articles on Controlling Home Heating Costs, Paying Down Holiday Debt, Seven Things You Didn't Know About Paying for College, Tax Time is Here Again and Time for New Wheels: Buying vs. Leasing.   The Balance Sheet Winter 2017 Issue.

Healthy Home Environments: Environmental stewardship begins at home.  We offer workshops and trainings on home energy conservation in partnership with the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority. We provide guidance on improving indoor air quality, lead abatement and other home environment issues, like home safety, water conservation and on-site waste management systems.
