Life the way it should be

Opportunity Maine

The Opportunity Maine program is designed to provide a tax credit to help cover the payment of student loans for eligible Maine students who work and pay taxes in the state after they finish school.  Beginning with any loans that a student takes in January 2008, he or she will be eligible to claim a large tax credit to pay student loans after they graduate. Businesses are also eligible for the tax credit if they agree to pay a students’ loan.

This website provides information on Opportunity Maine for students attending any institution of the University of Maine System
