The Northeast Agenda identifies challenges and opportunity areas for the regional Land-grant programs to ensure a regenerative, livable, and vibrant Northeastern United States. It describes the unique characteristics of the Northeastern United States and shares the vision, mission, and purpose of Northeast regional Land-grant programs, our Extension services, and state agricultural experiment stations.

The Northeast Agenda is the product of directors from two organizations: the Association of Northeast Extension Directors (NEED) and the Northeastern Regional Association of State Agricultural Experiment Station Directors (NERA).
