Heart of Ellsworth to Receive Maine Community Foundation Downeast Innovation Grant
ELLSWORTH: Maine Community Foundation has awarded a $10,000 Downeast Innovation grant to Heart of Ellsworth.
The funds will support revitalization efforts and provide Heart of Ellsworth an opportunity to explore creative ways to fill empty storefronts. This work will encourage community collaboration and involvement in downtown Ellsworth. Additionally, funds will be used to purchase equipment and tools to assist in quantitative data collection furthering the organization’s efficiency and ability to identify capacity building opportunities in the urban core.
Heart of Ellsworth promotes the downtown district through events such as holiday lights/parade/ Marketplace on Main Street, Taste of Ellsworth, Art of Ellsworth, Community Conversations and several other smaller programs that enhance our city’s offerings and add to the quality of life in Hancock County.
