Funding Policies & Guidance

Below you can find a number of documents detailing our policies and guidance around who and how we fund work in Maine.

We fund organizations that are 501(c)(3)s, local, state, or tribal government entities, or educational institutions. Applicants must be organizations based in Maine. If your organization is not eligible to apply independently, and you need to apply via a fiscal sponsor, please contact MeHAF before applying so that we can assist you with the steps. Individuals and private foundations are ineligible.

For questions about organizational eligibility and fiscal sponsorship (listed above), or about any funding policies and guidance listed below, please email Grants Manager Holly Irish.
