California University of Pennsylvania received a $100,000 grant to assist local business operations, such as marketing strategies and guidance for federal contracts.

The university's Government Agency Coordination Office received the grant from the Sarah Scaife Foundation. The grant runs through Aug. 31, 2014.

The grant program targets public policy programs that address major domestic and international issues, according to its website.

“The Sarah Scaife Foundation's generosity in funding our economic revitalization efforts in western Pennsylvania since 1985 is important to regional business,” interim CalU president Geraldine Jones said, in a news release.

The Government Agency Coordination Office has helped regional businesses receive 43,175 contracts totaling more than $2.9 billion, according to a news release.

The office offers 12 services, including advising companies in marketing products and notifying companies of bid opportunities for federal, state and local government contracts and foreign contracts, according to its website.

“The tremendous partnership we have with the Sarah Scaife Foundation has made this possible,” Office Director Deborah S. Wojcik said, in a news release. “We continue to educate businesses about government contracting procedures and the new programs being implemented by the government.”
