Belfast Receives $50,000 Economic Development Grant 

Things are going to get more creative in Belfast thanks to a $50,000 grant. The Belfast Creative Coalition is getting the money through the Maine Arts Commission’s Creative Communities Economic Development grant grant program. The money will be used to hire someone part-time to be available to let people know what’s going on in the area, and other things. There will also be a website, branding and more. ” A way to promote the area, promote the mid-coast region and let everyone know that Belfast is a place where people love to work, live and play,” said Dorothy Havey, executive director of Our Town Belfast. The Maine Arts Commission awards two $50,000 grants annually. For more information click here.
