The recent dam failures have been devastating for the Sanford and Midland communities, including businesses. That’s why the MBA is collaborating with the Midland Area Community Foundation to award more than $150,000 in grants to local businesses impacted by the recent floods.

The $150,000 in total funding comes from $50,000 from the MBA Foundation and $100,000 from the MACF. In addition, the Community Foundation has pledged more than $250,000 with $250,000 in matching funds to support local flood relief efforts.

Was Your Business Impacted?

The MBA is currently working on identifying resources and working with businesses to support them in their recovery efforts. Businesses directly impacted by flood should contact the MBA’s Vice President of Economic Development, Nicole Wilson, at nwilson@mbami.org.
