Introduction to the Franklin County TIF

Established in 2008, the Franklin County Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District provides public assistance to the Kibby Wind Power Project and created an economic development plan for Unorganized Townships (UTs) in Franklin County. As part of the economic development plan, a portion of the funds obtained from this district are put towards two funding programs: grants for projects in UTs and a revolving loan fund. 


The 2021 round of grant applications is open!

Organizations with projects that are located in the Unorganized Townships are encouraged to apply for funding. Applications are due on June 1st and can be downloaded below.  For further information please contact the TIF administrators at tif@franklincountymaine.gov.
