Description
The Maryland Center for Ago-Ecology was established in 1999 as a new private non-profit corporation affiliated with the University of Maryland. They announced one award of up to $75,000 in October 1999 to support a needs assessment and survey to help guide their future operations and programs. AFT competed successfully for the grant award.
