As you may have heard, the New Cares Act Package will include a new round of funding through the Paycheck Protection Program and EIDL loans. Though we are still waiting on details, we have put together a GRANT-PREP PACKET with information on exactly what you will need to do NOW to be ready to apply for these and other funding opportunities when they go live, with links that will take you directly to their respective pages.

This packet was created through a collaboration of the Piscataquis and Katahdin Chambers of Commerce, MaineStream Finance, and the Piscataquis County Economic Development Council.

Please note that downloading and viewing the document on your device or laptop is necessary for the links to work. Printing the document won't give you all the information you need.

As always, if you have any questions, PLEASE call me at 207-564-7533 or email me HERE.
