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 Spring 2017 edition contains articles on Emergency Preparedness: Is Your Financial Grab ‘N Go Kit Ready?; National Observances for April, June and July; Successful Secondhand Shopping; Having the “Talk” with Older Family Members; and An Emergency Fund — The Building Block of Financial Success.  The Balance Sheet Spring 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.

Cornell Cooperative Extension and Regional Economic Development: 2015 Columbia-Greene Interagency Yellow Pages

The 2015 Columbia-Greene Interagency Yellow Pages Directory of Programs and Services lists nearly every agency, group and organization that participated in the 2015 Interagency Awareness Day (IAD) as well as entries from some that weren’t able to take part in the half-day professional development, outreach and networking event.

The 2017 Interagency Awareness Day will take place the morning of Thursday, May 25, at Columbia-Greene Community College. For more information, including how to sign up to be an exhibitor or participant, contact IAD Chair Theresa Mayhew at tcm5@cornell.edu. An updated online directory of programs and services will be published later this summer.
