The Community and Economic Development Initiative of Kentucky (CEDIK) embodies the land-grant philosophy of integrating research, instruction, and extension in our service to families and communities.

If you are an Extension agent, a State or local agency, a locally elected official, or a grass roots organization, we are here to help.  Contact us!

CEDIK is dedicated to building Kentucky communities with a true sense of pride and place, rich natural and built amenities, and a strong economic base.
