Mills Administration, FEMA Partner on Mobile Vaccination Unit to Provide COVID-19 Vaccines to Rural, Under-Served Communities Across Maine

Maine to host New England’s second mobile vaccination unit capable of delivering at least 250 shots per day  (click to sign up soon – website )

Augusta, MAINE – The Mills Administration and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today a partnership to launch a groundbreaking mobile vaccination unit that will provide COVID-19 vaccinations to people in rural and under-served communities across Maine.

The mobile vaccination unit (MVU), which is only the second of its kind in New England, will begin providing COVID-19 vaccines to Maine people starting next Monday, April 12, 2021, at the Oxford Casino in Oxford. The MVU will then travel to ten additional rural or under-served communities across Maine – including Fryeburg, Calais, and Madawaska, among others – over the next two months. The MVU is expected to vaccinate at least 250 people per day, utilizing the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine in order to maximize efficiency.

“This mobile vaccination clinic is another important tool for our state as we work to get shots into arms as fast as we can,” said Maine Governor Janet Mills. “The clinic will complement our existing vaccination efforts well and allow people in rural communities to more easily get the vaccine, protecting their health and that of their loved ones and helping us to win the fight against COVID-19. I am grateful to the Biden Administration for its commitment to partnering with states to get people vaccinated and to FEMA for their outstanding work to deliver on that promise.”

“We’re excited to partner with the State of Maine on this joint effort to provide a vaccine to people in America who want one,” said Paul Ford, Acting Regional Administrator and Federal Coordinating Officer for COVID-19 in FEMA Region 1. “The ability for this unit to travel to hard to reach populations and meet people where they are is a great asset to support the residents of Maine and continue the fight against COVID-19.”

The Mills Administration requested FEMA’s support with Maine’s vaccination efforts after the Biden Administration committed to deploying Federal resources to assist states with getting shots into arms. The State and FEMA ultimately pursued a mobile vaccination unit in order to achieve two primary goals: 1) to reach rural and under-served communities, and 2) to complement large- and small-scale vaccination clinics already underway.

The eleven communities were determined by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, the Maine Emergency Management Agency, and FEMA in part based on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Social Vulnerability Index, which utilizes 15 U.S. census variables to help local officials identify communities that may need support before, during, or after disasters.

Appointments are required to receive a vaccination at the MVU. State, county, and local partners – including municipalities and community-based organizations – are coordinating outreach to local Maine residents, particularly high-risk and vulnerable residents, in each of the host communities to assist with scheduling appointments for locals. To check appointment availability at the Oxford Casino site, Oxford County residents may call the State’s Community Vaccination Line at 1-888-445-4111. Information on scheduling appointments at the other stops will become available on the state vaccination website in the coming days.

“We are honored to work with FEMA, the State of Maine, Oxford County and local authorities to bring COVID-19 vaccines to more people in Oxford Hills,” said Jack Sours, General Manager & Vice President for Oxford Casino Hotel & Event Center. “This endeavor continues our commitment to safety and being a strong community partner during these unprecedented times.”

“The Town of Oxford is excited to work with FEMA and our EMA partners to provide assistance to help support the mobile COVID-19 clinic at the Oxford Casino,” said Adam Garland, Oxford Town Manager. “Public health and safety is a top priority here in Oxford, especially during this pandemic. This mobile COVID-19 clinic represents a great collaboration between Federal, State, County and Local governments which allows for much greater public access to COVID-19 vaccines.”

The MVU will be run by staff provided by FEMA, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Public Health Service, and others, with support from State and local Emergency Medical Services, local health care providers and volunteers.

“Through the remarkable efforts made by health care professionals, volunteers, the Maine CDC and National Guard, and local business leaders, Maine has one of the highest vaccination rates in the country. Maine is once again leading the way by becoming one of the first states to pioneer a mobile clinic to expand vaccine access,” said Senators Collins and King and Representatives Pingree and Golden. “This new initiative will bring these life-saving shots directly to rural and underserved communities, making it more convenient for Mainers to access the vaccine. With each vaccination, we come closer to ending this terrible pandemic.”

“In a rural state like Maine, the Federally run mobile unit is a much-needed solution to delivering vaccinations to people in harder to reach communities,” said Jeanne Lambrew, Commissioner of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services. “This is a welcome step forward in our ongoing efforts to address health disparities that pre-dated the pandemic in rural and parts of urban Maine.”

“The mobile clinic adds another important option in our efforts to vaccinate Maine people quickly and equitably,” said Dr. Nirav D. Shah, Director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. “This partnership allows us to shorten the distance between Maine people and shots that can save their lives.”

“Maine Emergency Management Agency continues its partnerships at the state, county, local and federal levels,” said Peter Rogers, Director of the Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA). “The MEMA team has been working with our colleagues at FEMA since the beginning to bring the Mobile Vaccination Unit to Maine. Having this MVU asset will be a force multiplier in the fight against COVID-19.”

The Federal-State partnership, which comes one day before Maine expands vaccine eligibility to all residents age 16 and older, builds on the Mills Administration’s ongoing work to expand access to the COVID-19 vaccine. These efforts include, but are not limited to: standing up large-scale vaccination sites, providing vaccine to independent health care providers and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) in under-served areas, dispatching public health nurses to clinics throughout the state to meet the needs of at-risk Maine people who cannot easily travel to large-scale community vaccination clinics, and providing in-home vaccination to homebound Maine people.

To date, 463,662 Maine people have received their first dose of the vaccine – more than 41 percent of Maine people age 16 and older, with more than 28 percent being fully vaccinated. Maine is currently 4th best nationwide for the percentage of its population with at least one dose of vaccine and currently ranks 5th best nationwide for the percentage of its population fully vaccinated.

Governor Mills Announces First Round of Economic Recovery Grants to Maine Small Businesses & Non-Profits

October 15, 2020

Governor Janet Mills and Commissioner of Economic and Community Development Heather Johnson announced today that the Mills Administration has begun distributing the first round of financial awards to Maine small businesses and non-profits through the Maine Economic Recovery Grant Program.

Grant letters notifying the recipients of their award were sent yesterday in collaboration with Maine’s seven Economic Development Districts, which will distribute funds by early November. The program, backed by $200 million in Federal CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF), provides some financial relief for businesses and non-profit organizations that incurred business disruptions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2,329 awards, which include 2,072 to small businesses and 257 to non-profits, total $105 million dollars and average just over $45,000 per award with recipients spanning the entire state. The hospitality sector, particularly lodging and accommodations, represent the largest percentage of recipients, drawing 35 percent of the awards. The grants are intended to help sustain the viability of Maine’s small businesses and nonprofits – not to replace lost profits – and will provide short-term relief to help stabilize Maine’s economy. At the same time, the Administration continues to focus on the state’s long-term goals described in the state’s 10-year strategic economic development plan. The program draws on a recommendation from the Governor’s Economic Recovery Committee.

“There is no question that Maine’s small businesses are struggling to survive unprecedented economic hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Governor Mills. “While these funds will not make them whole, they offer some lifeline to keep afloat those small businesses that are at the core of our economy. I encourage all eligible businesses and nonprofits to apply for the second round of this relief as I continue to call on Congress to provide more direct aid to the State of Maine.”

The Mills Administration worked with the seven Economic Development Districts across the state to operationalize the program. Based on eligibility requirements, which align with allowable uses of CARES Act CRF monies under guidance provided by the U.S. Treasury Department, the Economic Development Districts determined the eligibility of each application, consulting with state agencies when needed. If a small business or non-profit were determined to not meet eligibility requirements, they were also notified yesterday, including a justification for the denial so that the organization can determine their eligibility for Phase 2 of the grant program.

On September 21st, Governor Mills announced the second phase of the Economic Recovery Grant Program. This second phase expands access to the program by increasing the number of eligible organizations. Under Phase 2, businesses and non-profits that employ up to 250 people are eligible for grant awards.In addition, licensed childcare andbehavioral health organizations will be eligible in this round, along with businesses and non-profits that are less than one year old. The application portal for Phase Two of the Economic Recovery Grant Program remains open until October 23, 2020.

“There are a number of areas of our economy that have been severely impacted as a result of the pandemic,” said Heather Johnson, Commissioner of Economic and Community Development. “We hope this program can help support businesses during this difficult time.”

Grants awarded through the Maine Economic Recovery Grant Program may be used to cover expenses including: payroll costs and expenses; rent or mortgage payments for business facilities; utilities payments; necessary operating expenses; expenses incurred to replenish inventory or other necessary re-opening expenses; purchase of personal protective equipment required by the business or business related equipment. Funds must be spent on operations that are strictly within Maine. Recipients are liable for any misuse of funds, and the grants are subject to audit.

Reminder – Thompson Lake that water levels will start to recede on September 8th

I want to take a moment to once again remind property owners on Thompson Lake that water levels will start to recede on September 8th in anticipation of rehabilitation work on the dam starting. The drawdown is necessary for cofferdam placement and to put the town in compliance with the Natural Resources Protection Act permit. The annual drawdown typically occurs after Columbus Day and takes approximately two weeks to complete. In order to take advantage of warmer temperatures and a short construction window, the decision was made to start the project in September. Water levels will decrease to 33 inches below the dam benchmark line which is what it is typically seen during the winter months. For seasonal and non-seasonal residents who have water craft on the lake, I would suggest monitoring water levels daily and making arrangements to get your boats out early. Current water level at the dam is 20”. For further information on the dam project or water levels please contact your local municipal officials or the Oxford Town Office.

Thompson Lake draw down begins September 8th, 2020. Levels expected to be normal winter water level.

Winter drawdown of Thompson Lake will commence on September 8th in preparation of the dam rehabilitation project. Typically the drawdown begins the day after Columbus Day. The drawdown is necessary for the installation of the cofferdam that is going to be placed on the upstream side of the dam and for the safety of the workers performing the work. Lake levels will be no lower than what lake residents have BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO SEEING during the winter months (since 2012). The drawdown will be gradual and take some time to complete. The maximum drop for lake levels during the winter months is 38”. The level will eventually drop to 32”-33” from the benchmark line drawn at the top of the dam. These water levels were established several years ago due to the collaborative efforts of the TLEA, the town and the Maine Department of Inland  Fisheries & Wildlife. To put this in perspective, summer water levels are normally 16” below the benchmark line on the dam.
