Cooperative Extension plays a unique role by bringing the University of Arizona to both urban and rural Maricopa County. Maricopa County is home to almost four million people, each with unique needs. Extension provides practical information and education to help people make their lives better. Outreach efforts translate relevant University of Arizona research into effective practices people can put to immediate use in their homes and businesses.
