18 Effect of Cuts Have Been Minimized By Several Factors:  Retired Agents Rehired (Currently 35 on State Funds)  Fort Valley Hired 7 New Agents  Counties Have Increased Funding in Some Cases  Support from School Boards (Not Common in Other States)

19 Challenges Over The Next Year  Many Rehires End June 30, 2010  Counties Feeling Budget Crunch  Loss of Experience with Retirements  Lack of Training $  Younger Faculty Stepping into Leadership Roles  Additional State Budget Cuts???

20 Question?  With only 237 state funded county agents how do we deliver effective county programming in three program areas for 159 counties???
