Lightning Grants

Please Note: At this time we are not accepting applications for Lightning Grants.

There’s no deadline for our rapid-response Lightning Grant. Lightning Grants are for up to $2,000, though most are for less. These funds must be used for immediate needs, such as special one-time or unplanned expenses, and for technical assistance.

Please call Phil Walsh at 207-607-4070 or email us to learn more about how to apply.

If you’re approved by our Lightning Grants committee, we’ll do our best to give you an answer within two weeks and a check within four.
