UI Extension, Nez Perce Reservation Program

The UI Extension, Nez Perce Reservation Program was funded by the USDA-CSREES in 2007. The new office was opened in February 2008 in Lapwai, Idaho. This program was made possible through a partnership with the Nez Perce Tribe, who is providing the office space, and is a Federally Recognized Tribes Extension Program (FRTEP). Idaho has two other FRTEP projects, one on the Coeur d’Alene Reservation and one on the Fort Hall Reservation.
