Cornell Cooperative Extension Association of Chemung County (CCE-Chemung) is a non-profit organization exempt from income tax under IRS 501(c)(3) as an educational organization. The Association is part of the Cornell Cooperative Extension land-grant system, a partnership between County, State, and Federal governments. Cornell Cooperative Extension Association of Chemung County is a subordinate governmental university, not a part of Cornell University.
