Statewide Extension Funding
As a unique partnership among federal, state and county governments, UMaine Extension uses funding from Maine counties and the University to match and leverage support from the United States Department of Agriculture, other federal grantors, state agencies and private foundations. Each county UMaine Extension office is also part of a statewide organization and the national Extension system.

Each year, Piscataquis county tax dollars support the UMaine extension with physical office space, support staff salaries, office supplies, equipment, and some programming expenses.
