ASK Grant

The LCRPC encourages towns to apply for a Fall 2020 ASK grant for technical assistance in developing a solution to a municipal project or problem.
We expect to award 3 to 5 grants -- whether you're at a concept stage or looking to weigh alternative solutions, please take a look at the attached application and the program's priorities. Towns which have received earlier ASK grants in 2019 or spring 2020 are not likely eligible for this round unless the project has been completed.

Phase II Maine Econ Recov Grants

This Phase II Economic Recovery Grant program provides grants for businesses and non-profit organizations that demonstrate a need for financial relief basd on lost revenues or expenses related to the disruption of business operations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants will be distributed based on a business’s/organization’s demonstrated losses as a pro-rated percentage of the total losses reported by qualified applicants.

The program is not intended to replace lost profits but only to help businesses remain viable. This program is intended to assist in the stabilization of Maine’s economy and accelerate the transition from short-term relief to regaining our state’s focus on Maine’s 10-year Economic Development Strategy, anchored in talent and innovation.
