As of August, 31, 2018, the Maine Harvest Credit Project completed raising the necessary $2.4 Million in startup grant capital. The last commitment, from the Maine Credit Union League brought them right to the mark. They are very appreciative of the League’s support and advice throughout the process.
Commitments came from a wide range of donors: Maine Foundations, individual donors, a USDA Grant and support from the Maine Credit Union League. All have seen the value of creating an institution for a better food system in Maine.
Maine Harvest Credit Project has also submitted their primary Federal Regulatory Application. At almost 1,000 pages, it was a major effort. Now they look forward to a few more regulatory hoops and hopefully opening their doors in 2019.
