Meeting Support Program
MeHAF’s Meeting Support program provides grants of up to $1,000 for community or regional meetings and up to $2,000 for statewide conferences and meetings. The Meeting Support program does not provide funding for operational costs (travel expenses, etc.), internal trainings, or events that function primarily as fundraisers. Meeting Support program grants will not be awarded to the same meeting consecutive years.
The focus or objective of the meeting must be relevant to MeHAF’s mission and related to groups or populations that face disproportionate barriers to accessing health services and achieving the best possible health.
Meetings Considered for Funding:
- Address barriers to health and health care for Maine’s most vulnerable populations
- Have a broad base of community support or include community collaboration
- Will implement a virtual, online format strategy for conferences or meeting events. Can include funding for costs such as, but not limited to:
- Meeting Facilitator
- Guest speakers
- Data Collection/consultants
How to Apply for a Meeting Support Grant
Click “Manage Your Grant” on the left side of this page to begin the application process.
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.
We have re-opened this program to support in person meetings. We strongly encourage any applicants awarded funding to review and implement the most current CDC guidelines around meeting in person to assure the safest meeting possible for those participating.
PLEASE NOTE: An organization can receive only one Meeting Support Grant per calendar year.
