The Maine Health Access Foundation works with nonprofit partners and key leaders in the public and private sectors to advance initiatives and policies that particularly help those who face barriers accessing health care services and achieving optimal health.
As the state’s largest nonprofit health foundation, we provide approximately $4 million in grant and program support to advance our mission through initiatives and programs focused on:
Providing grant funding to nonprofit and governmental partners is important, but we also rely on many other tools and techniques to advance our work.
The foundation provides grant funding and program support to nonprofit and governmental partners to advance each of these focus areas, but it takes more than grants to drive the systemic improvements in health and health care that we want to achieve.
We believe the strength of the foundation’s resources go far beyond grant funding. Our staff works very closely with grantees in a spirit of true partnership. For major grant initiatives, we provide regular learning community meetings where grantees can learn from local and national experts, share successes and challenges with each other, and hear directly from the community members that our programs are designed to serve.
