Military families face a lifestyle that includes frequent deployments and increased family separations. These challenges can affect military readiness. NIFA, the Land-Grant University System, and defense agencies partner to support military family and youth quality of life through extension educational programs and research designed to address the unique challenges associated with military family life. This mission-focused project cultivates collaborations with educational institutions, non-governmental and community-based organizations with appropriate expertise to support the family programs, workforce development, and child care and youth development expansion needs of the Department of Defense (DoD). Through this partnership, $7,045,454 is made available in Fiscal Year 2010 to implement the overall strategies and methods to provide training and technical assistance for child care providers and youth development program staff in targeted states.
