Times Union Article Cites UMaine Program

A Times Union article on Tech Valley Connect, a nonprofit group in North Greenbush, N.Y. that helps newly relocated families settle into the area, cited a similar program at the University of Maine. The article states Tech Valley Connect’s success has encouraged the National Science Foundation to replicate the program in other areas of the country. UMaine’s Maine Career Connect received a $284,093 grant from the NSF to network a consortium of employers in central and eastern Maine with newly relocated professional families, with an emphasis on spousal employment. NSF is also funding a similar program at the University of California at Davis.
