MAINE BUSINESS RELIEF FUND ANNOUNCED

In the wake of December 18th’s devastating storm, affectionately dubbed the “Grinch,” the Maine Grocers and Food Producers Association (MGFPA) and Retail Association of Maine (RAM) are taking proactive steps to support the numerous businesses affected across the state. The storm brought severe flooding, road washouts, and prolonged power outages, resulting in substantial losses for retailers, grocers, restaurants, and other small enterprises.  We will be providing up to $2,500 in grant allocations with the opportunity to reapply for up to $10,000 (as funds become available). Applications will open January 4, 2024 at 10am EST through January 31, 2024 at 12am EST. For more information visit: mainebusinessrelieffund.com
