Maine has been working on rural, place-based ecosystem building since 2019. The program now includes 13 communities that have undertaken ecosystem audits and developed implementation projects based on those findings. Leaders from three Main Street districts will share their audit findings and how this process helped them define their implementation projects, which included a focus on marginalized groups including youth, those living in poverty, and BIPOC and LGTBQ + communities. Learn how Maine is using entrepreneurship to create more inclusive and welcoming downtowns while simultaneously strengthening the State’s ecosystem.
