Your best bet is to seek funds from a local foundation.  Consult the
National Guide to Funding in Arts and Culture published by the
Foundation Center, 1001 Connecticut Ave. Washington DC 20036.  It is
organized by state.  The Third edition which I have in hand lists
Maine foundations on pages 282-3. You should be able to a get a copy
of the Guide in any major university library.
