Maine Economic Growth Council

A high quality of life for all Maine people

The Maine Economic Growth Council was established in statute to develop a long-range economic plan for the state and to measure our progress in achieving the plan’s benchmarks and goals. Council members are jointly appointed by the Governor, Speaker of the House, and President of the Senate, and consist of leaders from a variety of sectors and from across the state. By statute, the Council is administered by the Maine Development Foundation.
