Meeting Support Program

MeHAF’s Meeting Support program provides grants for meetings that have a focus or objectives relevant to MeHAF’s mission and that are related to groups or populations that face disproportionate barriers to accessing health services and achieving their best possible health.

We generally award grants of up to $1,000 for community or regional meetings and grants of up to $2,000 for statewide meetings. Grants should support meetings that address barriers to health and health care for Maine’s most vulnerable populations and have a broad base of community support or include community collaboration.

MeHAF grants may be used to fund costs such as, but not limited to:

  • Meeting Facilitator/Presenters
  • Guest speakers and related travel expenses
  • Stipends and travel costs for members of the community to attend

The Meeting Support program does not provide funding for operational costs, trainings for individual staff members, or events that function primarily as fundraisers.

Applications will only be considered if submitted at least six weeks before the meeting is to be held to assure adequate time to review the submission and complete follow up with the applicant as needed.

An organization can receive only one Meeting Support Grant per calendar year.
