Maine DMR, DECD seek job bond funds proposals

HALLOWELL — In 2014, Maine citizens approved a $7 million dollar general obligation bond “to facilitate the growth of marine businesses and commercial enterprises that create jobs and improve the sustainability of the State’s marine economy and related industries through capital investments.”

Input is requested from all interested parties, including private and public sectors, commercial and nonprofit enterprises, in all sectors of the marine economy, research community or interested public.
