Welcome to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County!
Since 1913, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County (CCE-Niagara) has responded to the needs of local residents with unbiased, research-based information, tools and education that people have come to depend on and trust. Our programs are developed in direct response to community input, and are based on the most current information available from Cornell and other Land Grant universities from across the nation.
Cornell Cooperative Extension puts knowledge to work in pursuit of economic vitality, ecological sustainability and social well-being. We bring local experience and research based solutions together, helping New York State families and communities thrive in our rapidly changing world.
CCE-Niagara is part of the Cooperative Extension land grant system, an educational partnership between County, State, and Federal governments that is administered in New York State through Cornell University. Each county's Cooperative Extension association is an independent employer, governed by an elected Board of Directors, and is responsive to county government with general oversight from Cornell University. All associations work to meet local needs as well as state and national goals.
CCE-Niagara is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and is considered under New York State’s County Law Section 224 subsection 8 as a subordinate governmental agency with an educational mission that operates under a form of organization and administration approved by Cornell University as agent for the State of New York.
We have an extensive system for getting input from diverse interests in the community, and we welcome your ideas and involvement in our efforts.
