strengthening communities

The Island Institute works to sustain Maine’s island and coastal communities, and exchanges ideas and experiences to further the sustainability of communities here and elsewhere.

Coronavirus Resource Page

In an effort to help our communities during this time, we have created a resource page to serve as a place for island and coastal residents, parents, schools, businesses, and others to access tools that may be useful in addressing some of the key challenges they are facing. We will be updating this page frequently.
