Urgent Need Grant Program

The Urgent Need Grant Program (UN) provides funding to enable a community to address serious and immediate threats to health and welfare of its residents. All units of general local government in Maine, including plantations, are eligible to apply for and receive Urgent Need Program funds.

An applicant must address a community development need identified within the past 18 months, which poses a serious and immediate threat to the health and welfares of the community and cannot be funded by the community and other sources.

To qualify for Urgent Need funding the proposed project must be made necessary due to a state or federal disaster declaration. Contact the Office of Community Development for application instructions.
