OSU’s statewide service programs, including the Extension Service, Agriculture Experiment Stations and Forest Research Laboratories, provide vital support and services to communities in every county in Oregon. In the 2023 legislative session, we are asking for $172M in base funding and $21M in additional programing focused on resilient systems such as food and agriculture, urban communities, public health and forests. Additionally, we are asking for greater support of Oregon Climate Services with $250,000 in continuing funding to support the State Climatologist.

Supporting this investment keeps OSU at the forefront of bringing the latest science and technology to bear on the issues facing Oregonians and ensuring sustainable food, agricultural systems, forests, environments and communities for the future.
