MeHAF's meeting support program provides grants of up to $1,000 for community or regional meetings and up to $2,000 for statewide conferences and meetings. If your organization is seeking a higher level of meeting support, you may consider submitting a discretionary grant Letter of Inquiry.

The focus or objective of the meeting must be relevant to MeHAF’s mission and related to groups or populations that face disproportionate barriers to accessing health services and achieving the best possible health.

Priority will be given to meetings or conferences that:

  • Address barriers to health and health care for Maine’s most vulnerable populations;
  • Examine issues and health needs that complement our current program work; 
  • Provide an opportunity for smaller organizations or those less familiar with MeHAF to seek funding; and
  • Have a broad base of community support or include community collaboration.

MeHAF generally will not provide meeting support grants for:

  • Staff travel to training or meetings/conferences
  • Internal staff trainings
  • Events that function primarily as charitable fundraisers
  • The same annual meeting/conference for multiple consecutive years.
