MeHAF works with a wide variety of nonprofits and health care organizations to carry out our mission of promoting access to quality health care and improving the health of everyone in Maine. Since making our first grants in 2002, we’ve awarded nearly $62 million to over 300 grantees, ranging from small, community-based nonprofits to large, statewide groups and public organizations. 

We award most of our grants through periodic competitive funding opportunities for programs in our three priority areas: Access for All, Better Care, and Improved Health. If a competitive funding opportunity is open at this time it will be listed below.

Occasionally, the foundation identifies an important issue outside of our existing program timelines, and reaches out directly to a prospective grantee organization or governmental unit to make a foundation-initiated grant. We do not accept unsolicited grant proposals.

MeHAF also supports small, discrete projects directly related to our mission through Discretionary and Meeting Support grants. These grants are available year-round.
