[ARCHIVED] Somerset County COVID 19 Relief Fund

A consortium of Somerset County development leaders have come together to offer financial assistance to businesses who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.


The Somerset County COVID-19 Relief Fund was established and will accept grant applications through July 31st. COVID-19 Relief Grants will provide up to $5,000 of financial assistance for Somerset County businesses negatively impacted by the pandemic. These are grant funds and do not need to be paid back and can be used for immediate COVID-19 relief to assist with payroll, utilities, rent, mortgage payments, insurance, inventory, production, etc.

Somerset Economic Development designated $25,000 to the fund which was quickly matched by the Somerset County Commissioners with an additional $25,000. The group is actively fundraising for additional support throughout Somerset County and will continue to do so through the summer.

Donations can be made to Somerset Economic Development Corporation, RE: COVID-19 Relief Fund, 41 Court St, Skowhegan, ME 04976 or by contacting Christian Savage at or (207) 474-0166.
