Part of the program and project evaluation process is reporting of our efforts and our impacts. The following resources outline tips, tricks, and best practices for reporting impacts to our stakeholders.

Impacts allow the Division of Agriculture to convey how our programs and research are benefitting Arkansans and even the world. Stakeholders always want to know how the Division is moving the needle on knowledge through Research or improving the lives of Arkansas through Extension.
