To help communities respond to northern New England’s economic challenges, public broadcasters in the tri-state region – New Hampshire Public Television (NHPTV), Maine Public Broadcasting Network (MPBN) and Vermont Public Television (VPT) – formed a multi-platform collaborative television series and community engagement initiative.
Making $ense New England is a 10-part financial awareness series focused on northern New England communities. Each 30-minute program will air monthly on MPBN, NHPTV, and VPT through August 2010.
