Financing the Work

... the United States Department of Agriculture up to date has contributed for the support of the work more than double the amount contributed by the state. The Extension revenue is not sufficient to enable the Service to equip itself to meet the demands made upon it. More specialists are needed and several more county agents could be placed if the Extension Service had funds with which to meet its part of the financial cooperation. A state law is needed providing for state aid and one authorizing county commissioners to make appropriations for the support of the work.
