As the educational arm of County Government, Androscoggin-Sagadahoc Counties Executive Association is the citizens advisory group for University of Maine Cooperative Extension in Androscoggin and Sagadahoc Counties. UMaine Extension’s successful educational programs result from a federal, state and county partnership that address the issues of Androscoggin and Sagadahoc Counties residents. Since 1919, when the Maine Legislature passed the County Extension Act, the University of Maine has been in all Maine communities with a local county office that is funded by county government. ASCEA oversees the funding allocated by the Androscoggin County Commissioners and the Sagadahoc County Commissioners, that provides housing, support staff and basic operations for UMaine Extension in Androscoggin-Sagadahoc Counties.
