[ARCHIVED] News update on the 2017 Facade Grant

To all interested in applying for the 2017 Micro-Enterprise Assistance Program Grant (Façade):


Our Office received today in the mail from the State of Maine Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) that their office had completed the review of all the applications for the 2017 Micro-Enterprise Program (Façade) Grant and at this time the Town of Skowhegan has not been selected for this funding.


An excerpt from the letter our office received:

          The Office of Community Development received 21 applications, with 6 communities receiving an invitation to proceed in the project development phase process. With our federal allocation decreasing each year, the competition for funding continues to grow, and the requests exceed our allotment for each program. This year there were requests for MEA program funds of $2,131,311 and the amount available for awards totaled $700,000. 


The Town of Skowhegan will apply for the next Micro- Enterprise Assistance Program Grant (Façade) when requests for new applications are available later this fall.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Economic & Community Development Office at 207-474-6905 Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
