Subject: Announcing the SRA's Covid-19 Relief Fund
I have some very good news: the Summer Residents Association of the Town of Mount Desert (commonly known as the SRA) is rolling out a program to make grants to local retailers, restaurants, and tourism-driven businesses that are hard hit by the Covid-19 crisis.
I've been working with the SRA board for the past several weeks, first to distribute a survey to help better understand what kinds of help would be most meaningful to our small businesses, and then to design a program to deliver relief. The survey was a real help (I suspect many of you responded - thanks!) and I think the program will make a real difference to many of you.
The SRA has created a website that explains the program and accepts applications. I urge you to take a look, review the guidelines, and consider submitting an application.
