'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.”
