Heart of Ellsworth to Receive Maine Community Foundation Downeast Innovation Grant
ELLSWORTH: Maine Community Foundation recently awarded a $10,000 Downeast Innovation grant to Heart of Ellsworth.
The Downeast Innovation fund will support marketing efforts and provide Heart of Ellsworth an opportunity to tell downtown’s story through a historical lens, connecting the Main Street of today to Ellsworth’s rich historical past. This work will encourage community collaboration and provide a platform to support a “sense of place” narrative for Main Street entrepreneurs with a focused effort to attract new businesses to Main Street. In addition, the grant will encourage others to return to downtown to be a part of the unified success that benefits all enterprises in the Main Street district. Heart of Ellsworth invites downtown businesses to send news or articles of interest to [email protected] Heart of Ellsworth will help spread the word.
Heart of Ellsworth promotes artistic, cultural, economic, educational, environmental and historical activities in the “downtown” area to promote a vibrant community for all.
