Foundation-Initiated Grants Program

Foundation-Initiated (FI) Grants are a tool MeHAF uses to support organizations across the state with projects that do not fit into other funding opportunities. Year to year, thorough our Staff, Board, Community Advisory Committee, and even other grantees, MeHAF may become aware of needs by communities, organizations, and even state agencies and choose to initiate a grant to support that specific work.

Below are some examples of previous FI grants MeHAF has distributed and a brief description of the work it has supported:
