FEMA COVID-19 Recovery Resource Guides 

Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) understands the significant impacts that COVID-19 has had on our communities and infrastructure sectors. It is our goal to provide as many resources to the public as possible to aid in the long-term recovery of Maine's economy. In collaboration with the FEMA Region I COVID-19 Recovery Task Force, established under the National Disaster Recovery Framework, MEMA hopes to assist in the redevelopment and revitalization of the health, social, economic, natural and environmental fabric of Maine communities through the distribution of the below resource guides. These New England sector-specific Resource Guides have been developed to provide Maine individuals and businesses with various funding and technical assistance opportunities in an effort to help support a resilient recovery.
