Keep the FAITH Fund Small Business Grant Program

The Keep the Faith (KTF) Fund Small Business Grant Program was created to provide relief to businesses located in Belfast that have had to close or experienced a significant reduction in business since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Belfast Mayor and Council recognize federal and state loan programs are available but not immediate, and we hope that this program will provide a small amount of help for our businesses during this difficult time. 

Please note, that for a business to be eligible to receive a grant, that business must be based in Belfast, and all Belfast real and personal property taxes of both the business and the owner(s) of the business must be paid in full, and any retail, commercial, or industrial businesses or service providers must have already filed this year’s Personal Property Declaration List with the City of Belfast Assessing Department. Please contact the City of Belfast Assessing Department at assessing@cityofbelfast.org or (207) 338-3370, extension 117, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this requirement.
