We at MaineStream Finance, a 20-year old, mission-driven nonprofit community development lender and part of the Penquis CAP family, are open for business to help your Maine business. We are staying in touch with officials at the Maine Department of Economic Development (DECD), Finance Authority of Maine (FAME), and Small Business Administration (SBA) as well as local officials in towns and cities and your local chambers of commerce. Below are resources and contacts for you to get through this difficult time. When there is an update or new resources available, we will update it here.
