Preliminary FY 2017 State subsidy printouts available

The following Priority Notice was sent to all Maine school districts today Friday, Jan. 29.

The Department is pleased to let you know that the FY 2017 (2016-17 school year) preliminary State subsidy printouts, known as ED 279s, are now available here on our website:

These preliminary amounts are based on the currently enacted biennial budget and do not represent final action of the 127th Maine Legislature; therefore, these amounts should only be used as “initial” guidance for your budget preparations. Final printouts will be released following the Legislature’s adjournment.

We hope this release of the preliminary ED 279s is informative to your local budgeting preparations. If you have any questions as you review these printouts, please contact our School Finance team members via email: or or
