Join Webinars on Capacity Funds Project – USDA-NIFA invites partners to discuss the upcoming evaluation of its Capacity Programs portfolio, which represents nearly half of NIFA’s budget. In process is an evidence-based analysis of the value and return on investment of these programs. It is expected the project will result in a showcase of the impacts these programs make on food, agriculture, natural resource, and human sciences issues facing the Nation. The evaluation is to be undertaken by a contractor, TEConomy, in collaboration with APLU. Join one of two webinars to find out about the goals and outcomes of the evaluation, get answers to your questions, determine who is best suited to complete evaluation instruments and discuss ways to reduce burden on respondents. Webinars are 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET Thursdays, June 30 and July 7, 2016 at at http://nifa-connect.nifa.usda.gov/cesls, dial-in at 888-8449904, access code 6710407#.
