PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (AP) - The federal government is giving more than $3.3 million in grants for biomedical research and medical device manufacturing in remote areas of Maine.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker said Tuesday the grants are coming from the federal Economic Development Administration.

The department is giving more than $1.8 million to Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor to help build a biomedical facility.

It is also giving more than $1.5 million to the city of Presque Isle to develop a city-owned industrial building to accommodate the expansion of an orthodontic and medical device manufacturer.
