Funding

[USDA logo- click to go to USDA homepage]University of Wyoming was awarded a USDA grant for WIN the Rockies (Wellness IN the Rockies), an innovative and synergistic four-year health-improvement project involving Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, their land-grant institutions and Extension Services, each state's medical education program, and other state organizations and community groups.

The project integrated research with Extension and education at the community, state, and regional levels.

The source of the funding was the USDA’s Initiative for Future Agriculture and Food Systems, and the process was highly competitive: Over 1,000 proposals were submitted, only 86 were funded, and UW’s grant (#0004499) was the largest single award given nationwide.
