Responsive Grant Programs
The Maine Health Access Foundation offers two responsive grant programs: Systems Improvement and Innovation Grants (SIIRG) and Community Responsive Grants (CRG). These programs are offered annually and provide project-based funding for initiatives that are responsive to needs identified by people in communities across the state.
We announce these opportunities on our home page and in our AccessPoints newsletter.
2022 Systems Improvement and Innovation Responsive Grants Program
The Letter of Inquiry period for the 2022 Systems Improvement and Innovation Responsive Grants program has closed. Organizations who are chosen to submit a full proposal will be notified on Friday, January 21.
The Systems Improvement and Innovation Responsive Grants (SIIRG) program focuses on creating change that is responsive to community identified health needs at the system and organizational levels, with a major emphasis on ensuring that the community of focus has a meaningful and ongoing voice in shaping improvements and innovations that address their barriers to health equity. The program provides funding for organizations to improve health and access to care in four strategic priority areas: rural health, aging/older adults, behavioral health, and maternal and child health.
