BIDDEFORD, Maine — Maine health care providers and educational institutions will get more than $2.3 million in federal money to expand services and create jobs.

The funding comes in the form of grants and awards from the federal Health Resources and Services Administration.

The University of New England in Biddeford will get nearly $900,000 to help fund its nursing and primary care training programs. The rest of the money will go to several primary health care and other medical facilities around the state.

One of the largest grants will go to Pines Health Services to serve the Caribou region in northern Maine. That grant is for more than $150,000.
