Residents of Maine’s island and coastal communities face challenges that are similar to those of many other small, rural communities. The What Works Solutions Library offers case studies and practical information about how residents of those rural communities have successfully addressed these challenges.
Examples of what works are often dependent on geography, funding, population size, etc. and there are few (if any) one-size-fits-all solutions to your community's challenge. However, lessons and advice contained here can inspire and inform projects and initiatives of all scales.
Could your community benefit from solutions to any of the following challenges?
