An infrastructure grant recipient from an earlier round has been unable to find the remaining funding to execute their project so they have cancelled their grant award from ConnectME. As a result we will be opening a special infrastructure grant round with $150,000 available. The application will be available on Monday, October 29th. Applications will be due December 7th. We will be using our new eligibility standard of 25/3 for this round. Please visit our website www.maine.gov/connectme/ on Monday October 29th after 3:00 p.m. for updated information.
Feel free to contact Heather Johnson 207-624-9838 or Brooke Johnson 207-624-9849 with any questions.
