MEJ Rental Housing Survey

Mainers need safe, stable housing to make it through this emergency.  Maine’s longstanding housing crisis has been made tragically worse by the COVID-19 crisis. It’s left many unable to pay for basic necessities, including housing.  Many tenants have not been able to pay rent for two months and fear eviction. Many have applied for relief but have not received the help they need. Maine Equal Justice has created a short survey for renters to describe their housing situation.  Survey responses will help MEJ advocate for housing justice.  More info about rights to housing at this stage of the emergency here.

Project ReachOut

Maine Seacoast Mission’s Project ReachOut was highlighted in WABI-TV’s April 24 report. Our initiative is based on the idea that we are all better off when we connect. Through Project ReachOut, Mission staff and volunteers make phone-calls to families in the EdGE program, seniors, residents of the unbridged islands, and other households in the Mission service area.

In this moment of profound isolation, the calls offer anything from the hello of a familiar voice, to an antidote for loneliness, to the first step in getting food. As WABI-TV put it, “The Maine Seacoast Mission has found a way to still be a positive voice for members of the Downeast community.”

As of May 1, Project ReachOut’s 39 callers have touched base with over 400 families and individuals. The Mission is still training and adding volunteer callers so we can reach another 1,000 families that we work with through our various services. You can help. Please fill out and submit your volunteer application online here. Or email or call 207-546-5860 to request a volunteer application.

Social Call Service

The COVID-19 pandemic has created many new challenges. It has also offered an opportunity for our community to come together in support of one another. Healthy Acadia’s Maine RecoveryCorps and MDI Hospital are partnering to respond to the isolation many community members are facing through a new Social Call service.

Social Calls are to be made by trained recovery coaches. Their recovery coach training and background has steeped them in a culture of empathy, support, compassion, and resilience. The callers are able to provide information on resources and offer reflective listening, encouragement, and honesty.

There are several avenues available to request a social call. One may discuss it with their provider who can send a referral on their behalf. The Healthy Acadia website has both on online form and one to print and return. Additionally Beth Alteri is available to 207 – 460 -2312 to take requests over the phone as needed. She can also be reached at or receive faxes at 207-331-5423.

Social calls offer an opportunity for connection and can serve to buffer the negative effects of physical distancing. These calls are not intended to replace an individual’s need to connect with their mental health professional, but rather be an additional service for them to tap into. If you or someone you know could benefit from a Social Call please reach out to us. We are here to help.

Sunrise Scholarship Fund

Has your job been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic? For the immediate future, Washington County residents who answer yes to that question are eligible to apply for up to $500 to assist with training that will increase your opportunities for employment regardless of prior income levels!  Click here for an application.  Visit  Call Jen at 255-0983 with any questions.

DCT Offers Virtual Services to Support Opioid Recovery

As a result of new virtual services, same-day access to anyone with opioid use disorder (OUD) who wishes to begin medication assisted treatment (MAT) is now available to anyone across Washington and Hancock counties. In response to the unfolding COVID-19 crisis, the Downeast Treatment Center (DTC) in Ellsworth has begun offering immediate, virtual, rapid access to MAT for all in the Downeast region…. Patients can expect a virtual intake over phone or Zoom, prescriptions called to pharmacies near them; ongoing, remote access to a medical provider, and access to virtual group or individual sessions with a behavioral health provider. Anyone who does not have insurance or who cannot afford their insurance deductibles or copays can apply for financial support from Healthy Acadia’s Treatment Fund.  Read the full press release from Healthy Acadia.

COVID-19 Rental Relief Program

Maine Housing has started a new program, the MaineHousing COVID-19 Rent Relief Program, for renters who cannot afford to pay their rent due to circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic. Downeast Community Partners is administering this program in Washington and Hancock Counties and will help renters apply.  Call 207-664-2424 option 5.  Read DCP’s press release about this program.  The program is designed to provide a one-time rental assistance payment of up to $500 for residential and commercial renters.  If the landlord agrees to participate in the program, the landlord is postponing the balance of the payment, not forgiving it. In addition, the landlord is agreeing not to evict the renter for non-payment of rent during the month in which the rental relief payment is made.  Renters who already receive any kind of direct or indirect Federal/State subsidy are not eligible.  There are no immigration/citizenship status requirements and there does not appear to be any required documentation of eligibility.  Download an application form and visit Maine State Housing Authority for more information about this program.

What is your experience with General Assistance?

Maine Equal Justice is working to improve General Assistance (GA), a program run by Maine towns that provides assistance for immediate needs and is a resource in times of emergency, like we are experiencing during COVID-19. Applicants find out if they’re eligible within 24 hours, and voucher payments are issued immediately to help cover basic necessities. Eligibility is not guaranteed, but no one can be turned away from applying, and during COVID-19 every application should be treated as an emergency. Have you or someone you know applied for GA recently? Please share your experiences with GA in this survey.  Translated versions  will be available soon.

if you are aware of a senior in need….

Healthy Acadia would like to share an Eastern Area Agency on Aging link to refer people for all services including the Meals on Wheels program. Please share this information widely!

Census 2020 – FAQs
The CCC is part of the Washington County Census Coalition working with the Census Bureau to help recruit temporary Census workers and to encourage everyone in Washington County to be counted so our Census data is as accurate as possible.  We depend on this data for reporting, grant writing, promoting programs and services, and many other projects, and the data itself directly corresponds to how much federal dollars our schools, programs and services receive.  Please share this 2020 Census FAQ fact sheet with partners, colleagues and clients, along with this safety fact sheet on how Census data received from respondents is safe and confidential.   Did you know that every Census Bureau employee takes an oath to protect your personal information for life? Or did you know that by law, your census responses cannot be used against you by any government agency or court in any way?  Learn the facts and share them!

Washington County Recovery Resources

The CCC in collaboration with Healthy Acadia has created a comprehensive, up-to-date list of recovery resources with contact info for Washington County.  As we know, services have shifted in light of COVID-19.  We want to ensure providers and community members are aware of the current available resources to support individuals impacted by substance use disorder. Here is a link to a “live” document that will be updated regularly.  Please keep checking back for the most up-to-date information.  We will be adding a Hancock County resource list soon!  If you are aware of other recovery resources in Washington County or believe an edit needs to be made to this document, please contact Abby Frutchey at or Penny Guisinger at

Bolstering General Assistance

Under the Governor’s March 31 Executive Order, all applications for General Assistance will be processed as emergency applications for eligibility purposes, and certain other requirements are waived. The order also allows eligible individuals to reapply after 60 days rather than 30 days for ongoing assistance.  General Assistance is funded through communities, with DHHS reimbursing 70 percent of municipalities’ costs. Under the Executive Order, DHHS will use existing funding to increase reimbursement to Maine Tribes to up to 100 percent. General Assistance can be used for basic necessities including food, housing, electricity and medical expenses. Assistance is not provided directly to eligible individuals, but rather it is issued in the form of vouchers used to pay vendors who provide goods and services to eligible individuals.
