What is the Maine Jobs & Recovery Small Business Grant Program?

This program is an initiative of the Maine Jobs & Recovery Plan. The program provides grants for small businesses and non-profit organizations targeted at supporting capital intensive businesses that still need immediate short-term help to sustain operations.

The State of Maine plans to use $5m for expense- based grant relief to help businesses and nonprofits with significant expenses related to COVID impacts.

These expenses include:

  • Interest on deferred loans – the loans must be in deferral as a direct result of the pandemic
  • Costs incurred as a result of reopening after COVID-19 related closure (such as PPE, workforce safety training, and installation of physical safety measures)
  • Increased costs of doing business as a result of COVID-19 (such as infrastructure tools to improve remote access (contactless check in/out, take out)
  • HVAC improvements, creation or addition of indoor or outdoor space for social distancing purposes,
