Assistance for Timber

Harvesters & Haulers

If you’re a business that harvests or hauls timber and you

were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, you

may be eligible to receive relief payments from a newly established

program from the USDA. The Pandemic Assistance for

Timber Harvesters and Haulers PATHH program provides

financial assistance based on a business’s gross revenue comparisons

between 2019 and 2020.

To calculate relief payments, the USDA will subtract a

business’s 2020 gross revenue from their 2019 gross revenue

and multiply that figure by 0.8. $200 million has been allocated

to this program. Depending on demand, eligible applicants

may receive up to $125,000. To be eligible, businesses

must have derived 50 of their gross revenue from harvesting

or hauling timber and must have experienced as least a 10

loss in gross revenue due to the pandemic.

Applications are being accepted now through October 15,

2021 and can be submitted to your local USDA Service center

via mail, fax, hand delivery or electronic means.

Goodwill Invests $50,000

into Other Local Nonprofits,

Moving Vermonters Toward

Personal Stability

This month Goodwill Northern New England launched a

$50,000 program to help move more Vermonters into personal

stability. The Partner Stability Fund gives vouchers to nonprofits,

who in turn gift them to their clients who need clothing

and household items most. Joint Urban Ministry Project

(JUMP) and Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS) were

selected to help push this goal forward.

“When strong non-profits work together, we multiply our

impact. JUMP and COTS both have long track records of supporting

people who need a hand up to achieve a stable life.

These vouchers will support their work and ours,” said Rich

Cantz, President and CEO of Goodwill NNE. “Goodwill can’t

be everywhere, all the time. These partnerships amplify our

efforts to help local people who need support.”

The vouchers also come with information about how to

connect with Goodwill’s workforce services, which support

anyone who needs help finding a job or career training. The

Partner Stability Fund is supported by financial donors to

Goodwill, along with revenue from the stores. To make a gift

visit goodwillnne.org/gifts.

These nonprofits were chosen to launch Goodwill NNE’s

Partner Stability Fund and were gifted grants of $5,000 or

more:

VERMONT

Joint Urban Ministry Project (JUMP): JUMP is an interfaith

organization supported by 28 area congregations in

the Chittenden County region of Vermont. JUMP has been responding

to the challenge of effectively assisting low-income

families and individuals since 1988.

Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS): COTS was

founded in 1982 by volunteers as a community response to

the newly emerging homeless population. The volunteers had

a simple goal: Keep people from freezing to death. Although

COTS has evolved over the years from emergency shelters to

a focus on prevention and housing for those facing the crisis

of homelessness, the heart of our organization has maintained

its fundamental commitment to humanity and the belief that

everyone deserves a home.

NEW HAMPSHIRE

CATCH Neighborhood Housing: CATCH Neighborhood

Housing is a non-profit organization offering a full spectrum

of housing and education services in Merrimack County.

CATCH meets the needs of the communities it serves by constructing

new affordable housing units and revitalizing existing

housing in an area where affordable rental options are limited.

They are focused on creating a community where every

person is confident of a home.

Families in Transition: Families in Transition is one of the

largest homeless services organizations in New Hampshire

with locations in Manchester, Concord, Dover and Wolfeboro.

They provide innovative and effective interventions specifically

designed to help homeless individuals and families reach

beyond the cycle of homelessness to lead healthy and successful

lives.

MAINE

Bangor Housing Authority: Bangor Housing provides

housing opportunities for low to moderate-income households.

They accomplish this by operating a combination of

741 affordable and market rate apartments in seven developments

throughout Bangor and by administering the Housing

Choice Voucher program in the City of Bangor and the surrounding

towns of Hermon, Glenburn, Hampden, and Veazie.

PENQUIS: Penquis is a nonprofit created to alleviate and

eliminate the causes and conditions of poverty. Penquis impacts

all of Maine’s sixteen counties, but primarily serves lowand

moderate-income individuals in Penobscot, Piscataquis

and Knox counties.

Good Shepherd Food Bank: Good Shepherd distributes We Get

millions of meals to Mainers in need through their network

of local partner agencies. Good Shepherd partners with more

than 500 local organizations – food pantries, meal sites,

schools, senior centers, health care centers and more – from

Kittery to Fort Kent. Together they provide nutritious food to

Mainers who are struggling to make ends meet. They are also

working on long-term solutions to break the cycle of poverty

and food insecurity.

Additionally, Goodwill Northern New England will keep

vouchers on-hand for its employees who need support. Goodwill

hired several “Life Navigators” — a social worker position

— to support employees through life’s challenges, whatever

they may be.

“We look forward to having a more impactful and meaningful

connection to our neighbors across our region. With all of

us working together, we will reach our goal of moving 10,000

people into personal stability across Maine, New Hampshire

and northern Vermont,” said Barbara Sawyer, who oversees

the program.

Members of the public in need of support can receive free

job help from Goodwill NNE, however the nonprofit is unable

to supply vouchers to individuals directly.

Goodwill Northern New England is a nonprofit social enterprise

in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. Profits from

its 30 thrift stores support its mission to help people achieve

independence and personal stability. Goodwill NNE’s programs

include workforce training programs, 23 group homes

that support adults with disabilities, active community supports

for adults with disabilities, AmeriCorps programs and

two business-cleaning services.

Goodwill NNE operates

two brain injury clinics to

help people get back to their

lives after a brain injury. For

The Various Advantages to Shopping Locally

Residents of a given town or city are often encouraged to

support local businesses by looking to these firms to fill their

needs. Small businesses are not just integral parts of communities,

employing millions across the country, they also are

operations that fund the very communities they service.

Efforts to promote shopping local appear to be working.

According to the Commonwealth Financial Group, over the

last several years there has been a shift in consumer purchasing

behavior marked by a preference among consumers to

support locally owned shops and stores over big-box retailers

and even online shopping.

• More money stays in the community: According to the

American Independent Business Alliance, for every $100

spent at a local business, $68 remains in the community. Conversely,

only 43 percent of every $100 spent at a chain retailer

stays in the community.

• Job creation: The Business Alliance for Local Living

Economies says local businesses create the majority of economic

growth. They employ millions of Americans by creating

roughly two-thirds of private sector jobs. Local business

owners also tend to hire people who represent the demographics

of the communities where the business is located, which

may include historically underserved populations.

• Personalized service: A small business owner may be

more inclined to go to great lengths to make customers happy

because the long-term success of the business depends on customers

becoming repeat customers.

• Personal connection: Knowing the people behind a business

facilitates a connection not easily achieved with other

companies. Customers may celebrate when a favorite business

succeeds and look to spread the word about that business

because they feel like they played a positive role in its success.
