The Maine Municipal Association is pleased to announce that Maine’s 477 non-entitlement communities will soon be able to access their share of the Federal revenue allocated under the American Rescue Plan Act. In anticipation of the distribution, municipal officials from across the State have been meeting with other local, county, and State leaders to explore opportunities for investing this level of unprecedented federal funding.
The Mills Administration applied for the Local Fiscal Recovery Funds from the U.S. Treasury and has received $59.6 million for immediate distribution, with a second tranche of equal value expected in approximately one year and to be distributed at that time. As part of the program, the Department of Administrative and Financial Services has also unveiled an online portal through which Maine municipalities can request the Federal funding starting today.
