New Small Business: Do you have an idea for a new small business that you need help to launch? Pitch your idea to us and we will award you a grant (you do not need to pay this back) and help you find a resource for a small loan to help you get started if your idea is selected.
New Agricultural Project: Do you want to start a new 4-H agricultural project? Do you need help to get the project started? Show us what you need and what you are contributing toward your new project. Agricultural projects can be livestock or garden based, and can support Maine Harvest for Hunger and Kids Can Grow projects.
