The Maine Health Access Foundation is the state’s largest private nonprofit health care foundation dedicated to promoting access to quality health care and improving health.

Many of our current programs focus on building the capacity of community-led organizations to create health outcomes that are more equitable for every person in Maine. Past and current grantees have helped to improve systems to address critical health needs, coverage, and access to quality care.

2023 Community Responsive Grants Program Awardees Announced

In November, MeHAF awarded $604,664 in funding for seven new Community Responsive Grants. These grants fund projects that are community identified and led to address barriers to achieving health equity. 2023 Grantees include Health Equity Alliance, Maine Transgender Network, Mindbridge, New England Arab American Organization, Quality Housing Coalition, Rangely Health and Wellness Partnership, and Somali Bantu Community Association.

The diverse projects, which include both one- and two-year grants, cover health-related aspects of issues ranging from developing models to better engage women experiencing poverty in physical and behavioral health services, to expanding access to a full continuum of sexual health, wellness, and prevention needs for individuals in the most rural parts of Maine.
