  3. Meet the financial qualifications. See below to see what this means for you.

If you fit the description above, you may be eligible and want to apply. If you are unsure if you are eligible, you should contact us to find out more. We are happy to help.

Financial Qualifications

The HOPE Program uses the following guidelines to make sure you are financially eligible.

  1. You must have $10,000 or less in assets. HOPE does not count your primary house or car as assets.
  2. Your family's gross income (the amount before taxes and deductions) must be at or below 185% of the Federal Poverty Level for the size of your family*. Use the table below to see what this means for you.

*HOPE does not count certain types of income, so you still may qualify if you have income higher than the amounts above.

Your Training and Education Program

HOPE needs to make sure that your training or education program is cost-effective and that it will help you get the job you want once you graduate. Your training and education program needs to:

  1. Award a degree or certificate beyond high school. If it is a preparatory course or program, it must be necessary for enrollment into a training or education program beyond high school.
  2. Be accredited or result in a credential recognized by trade or industry associations.
  3. Be cost-effective. If you are attending a private, for-profit, or out-of-state school, we will need to review your school to make sure it is a cost-effective option.
  4. Lead to a job with at least an average job outlook
  5. Relate to a healthcare, technology, or engineering field if it is a bachelor's degree program. There are many different types of programs that can lead to jobs in those fields. If you are unsure if your program fits, please contact us.

We want to make sure you are supported while you are in school. Programs entirely online must be approved by the HOPE Program.

What Is Average Job Outlook?

Average job outlook means a job has 30 or more annual total openings in Maine. The Center for Workforce Research and Information (CWRI) is an agency of the Maine Department of Labor that provides research and guidance on employment outlook in Maine. For more information, visit: https://www.maine.gov/labor/cwri/outlook.html

Look below to see if your program of study will lead to a job with at least an average job outlook.
