Maine Tourism Relief Fund - Applications Close Friday, May 8

Posted May 05, 2020

The Maine Tourism Relief Fund, founded by Poland Spring and the Maine Tourism Association, was created to provide relief to small businesses and their employees experiencing great hardship as a result of business closures in the state due to COVID-19.

Through this fund, grants will be made to small businesses based in the state of Maine who work in tourism-related industries for companies with less than 50 people who have been impacted by coronavirus. It also helps their employees who have experienced a decrease in wages or loss of employment. Grants will be awarded as quickly as possible to those who meet eligibility criteria, as reviewed and verified by the Maine Tourism Association.

Grants will be awarded as soon as possible to those individuals and businesses who meet the prescribed eligibility criteria, as reviewed and verified by the Maine Tourism Association.  Subject to the availability of funds contributed to the Fund, a one-time grant of $500 for individuals or $1000 for small businesses will be disbursed directly to the applicant following review and confirmation of eligibility.  Awards will be limited to one grant per person.  Application FAQs.
