  • At the bottom of the Guided Search Page, you will see the following section:

  • YOU MUST ENTER A ZIP CODE in the Location field.  

Note:  Entering your residential zip code OR a zip code close to where you’re looking for Resources will produce the most local results.  


Important:  Select the name of the town from the list that appears after you enter your desired zip code.

  • Then, do one of the following:   

     1)  Type a search term into the Keyword Search field

                    – OR –

     2)  Click the desired Category/Sub-category from the Guided Search

After clicking the desired Category or Sub-Category, that term will populate the Keyword Search field.

Clicking the “Search” button, when paired with a recognized zip code in Maine, will produce the desired search results.
