Over the last month, MaineHousing has shifted into high gear to respond to Mainers’ critical housing needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re proud to serve Maine by supporting homeless shelters, funding temporary shelters across Maine, and helping Maine renters who are struggling to pay their landlords because of loss of income or other COVID-19 related problems.
We are quickly creating programs to address emerging needs across the state. We’re grateful to our partners at Maine’s Community Action Agencies, homeless shelters, municipalities, the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, the University of Maine System, the Maine Emergency Management Agency, and many others who have stepped up to the plate and are working hard to help Maine people. We’ve described some examples of these collaborations below.
We hope you and yours are healthy and faring as best as you can during this difficult time.
Dan Brennan, Director
