Grant Programs

Below are the links to the two grant programs Penobscot County is hosting. They have different levels of requirements based on the different amounts that will be funded through each. Please read the program information for each before applying. You may only apply for one grant regardless of which program you choose.

We are aware of the delays in receiving Federal Identification Numbers. Please do not wait until you receive your SAM number to apply for the Sub-Recipient Program! The text field has been changed so that you can now write in "Applied". You will need to have all of that identification before any funds can be released to your organization.

The Beneficiary Grant Program

Please download and read the Treasury's Compliance and Reporting Guide before applying to the Sub-recipients program. This is information for Recipients (Penobscot County) and the regulations pass through to Sub-Recipients.

Below is a checklist of questions to ask as you get ready to apply for funding. There are links with more information. Information from the Compliance and Reporting Guide will supersede any information listed in the checklist or links. All links will take you to websites outside this one.

Sub-Recipient Grant Program

This program is for nonprofits, other organizations administering funds through a fiscal agent, and towns that have been impacted by the pandemic. These awards start at $25,000. These awards will have more intensive administrative requirements in keeping with the Federal regulations governing them. There are eligibility criteria you must meet to apply for this program. If you can not meet them you may still apply for the Beneficiary Program or use a Fiscal Agent to administer any funds awarded.
