Summary 2020 — Nevada
Innovative Programming Conducted and Educational Resources Developed
Major Program Impacts or Outcomes
At the beginning of 2020, the Nevada Department of Agriculture determined the agricultural literacy coordinator's position would be realigned to meet other priority needs of the agency. At the time it was the goal to identify a new organization to take on the leadership of AITC but due to the COVID-19 pandemic those conversations have been postponed and the ag literacy coordinator will continue to provide basic support of the program until such a time as conversations can be held about the future of the state program.
