AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine towns and cities are facing a pair of deadlines to apply for federal grants to repair damage from Hurricane Irene, which was a tropical storm by the time it dumped flooding waters on the state in late August and lashed it with damaging winds.

State officials and the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Maine city, town and county governments, school districts and certain private nonprofits soon must submit their requests for up to 75 percent of the cost of approved projects FEMA will pay.

The deadlines for Franklin, Oxford and York counties will be Thursday, and for Lincoln County Oct. 24.

Private nonprofits that may qualify are those that provide public, government-like services such as educational, utility, emergency, medical and custodial care.
