Extension has three major funding sources: the federal government, state government, and local government.
The federal funding links Extension with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and to national trends and issues. State funding ensures that the needs of Michigan citizens are being met. Local funding means that Extension is in place to deal with the problems and issues in every county.
Increasingly, additional funding is being sought through grants from various foundations and the private sector.
Extension programs are very cost effective. They involve volunteers, community people who have special expertise or knowledge. Using volunteers expands the outreach of Extension's educational programs without hiring additional professionals.
Macomb County is part of Region 11, combined with Wayne County and Oakland County
