Two-Year Progress Report
Since the Jobs Plan went into law on October 18, 2021, its initiatives have delivered $175 million to thousands of Maine businesses, created workforce opportunities for 25,000 people, and invested in more than 400 infrastructure projects statewide to bolster childcare, broadband, energy efficiency and weatherization, housing, and more.
The Jobs Plan was introduced by Governor Mills in May 2021 with broad support from Maine business, education and civic leaders. It draws heavily on recommendations from the Governor’s Economic Recovery Committee and the State’s 10-Year Economic Development Strategy.
Coordination of the Jobs Plan is led by the Maine Department of Administrative and Financial Services and the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future.
Funding for the Jobs Plan is through the federal American Rescue Plan Act, which allocated $4.5 billion in funds to Maine in 2021, as part of the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds program.
