Gov. Janet Mills today, May 4, unveiled a $1 billion Maine Jobs and Recovery Plan.

The Governor’s plan, according to, makes historic investments in unaddressed needs and longstanding challenges to achieve three goals:
Immediate economic recovery from the pandemic, long-term economic growth for Maine, and infrastructure revitalization.

The plan accomplishes these goals by supporting Maine small businesses and heritage industries, encouraging new businesses and job creation through innovation and entrepreneurship, and investing in essential infrastructure – broadly defined as roads and bridges, broadband, affordable housing, and child care – to keep and attract young families.
