Remote Worker Welcome Program

Department of Economic and Community Development

Allocation: $5,000,000

Status: Pending

With Maine as just one of 10 locations in the U.S. to successfully attract new residents to live and work remotely during the pandemic, further strengthening the attraction and integration of remote workers into our communities is an economic growth opportunity. 

Maine’s Department of Economic and Community Development is establishing the Remote Worker Welcome Program to support outreach to potential remote workers and their employers. It will provide resources for communities to attract and integrate remote workers and their families and offer funding to stabilize and expand collaborative workspaces that enable remote workers to build local networks and successfully contribute from Maine.
