The Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES), USDA, announces the Children, Youth, and Families at Risk (CYFAR) funding program to support community-based programs serving children, youth, and families in at-risk environments. CYFAR funds are intended to support the development of high quality, effective programs based on research and to document the impact of these programs on intended audiences. The CYFAR Program mission is "to marshal resources of the Land-Grant and Cooperative Extension Systems to develop and deliver educational programs that equip limited resource families and youth who are at risk for not meeting basic human needs with skills needed to lead positive, productive, contributing lives." In FY 2004, CSREES anticipates that approximately $480,000 will be available for support of CYFAR CYFERnet Projects.
