AUGSUTA, Maine (WABI) - 386 businesses are taking part in the state’s Back to Work incentive program, according to the Maine Department of Labor.

They must be hired between June 15th and July 25th of this year and complete at least 8 weeks at their new job.

Meanwhile, the state is giving businesses more time to apply for the grant money.

The original deadline to file an application was last Friday.

Now, it is next Friday, August 20th.
