Congressman Chris Collins will announce details of a new technology grant program Friday.

Rep. Collins, along with representatives from Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Rochester, will discuss the TRANSFER Act of 2013. This proposed program will award grants to innovative technology programs at universities and research facilities.
