The Katahdin region is home to resilient communities, abundant natural resources, and innovative ideas that create opportunities for businesses, residents, and investors. In conjunction with the Katahdin Region Development Board, we collaborate with public and private partners to promote the community-based work that spurred from the closure of the former paper mills. Communities have dedicated time and resources to be fully engaged in creating an economically vibrant region; we build off of that work by coordinating efforts and fostering partnerships. With forest products, tourism, emerging technologies and education at the center of redevelopment in the Katahdin region, we provide strategic and individualized support to help you:

This endeavor is funded by the Penobscot County Commissioners, thanks to revenue generated by the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument and TIF funds. Our main office is located at the Katahdin Higher Education Center in East Millinocket. The Center has a long and impressive history in the region; for many years they provided access to resources, training and education to dislocated mill workers. Today it continues to play a vital role as a hub for community revitalization efforts, while still providing training and certification programs to connect people with jobs in Maine’s growing industries.
