Posted on: February 22nd, 2013 by NADO Admin

Rep. Michael Michaud (D-ME) announced he will introduce the Northern Border Regional Commission Reauthorization Act.  Rep. Michaud’s legislation would provide for a five year reauthorization with $30 million in funding each year.  The Northern Border Regional Commission was first authorized in the 2008 Farm Bill to help address the community and economic development needs of the most severely distressed portions of the Northeastern United States. Under the five‐year authorization measure, the new federal‐state regional commission was established to target resources to promote economic growth strategies and projects within the northern portions of the four‐state region of Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont.
