In an effort to help Maine's small businesses during this time, we have created this page to serve as a place for island and coastal small business owners, artists and makers, and nonprofits to access tools and resources to help them address current challenges and impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be updating this page regularly, so we invite you to keep checking back as new information is added.
