In 1979 the program was transferred to the Department of Human
Development and Family Studies and renamed the Cornell Migrant Program. Engman
became the director and Kay Embrey became the Wayne County office director in
1980. Kathy (Fox) Castania was hired in 1981 and she and Embrey founded the
Wayne Action for Racial Equality. For the first years of the program all
funding was provided by the College of Agriculture and Cornell Cooperative
Extension. By the mid 1970's, grant money was being raised to expand programs.
As of 1994, the financial support was divided between the College of Human
Ecology, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell Cooperative
Extension and grant money.
