Grants ranging from $3,000 to $15,000 to Maine organizations for programs and projects that advance children's health. Letters of Interest are required prior to submission of full applications. In general, the funding source seeks proposals that address the needs of Maine’s poorest and most underserved populations, such as low-income and rural communities.

Successful applicants typically have strong track records and take approaches that are creative but well grounded (e.g., in data, theory, best practices, evaluation methods, etc.).

Funding will be provided for almost all forms of grant requests (e.g., program grants, capacity building grants, challenge grants, matching grants, etc.).

GrantWatch ID#:

GrantWatch ID#: 180626

Estimated Size of Grant:

As a general rule, individual grants are expected to fall in the $3,000 to $15,000 range.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Maine organizations may apply. The Foundation strongly prefers to fund organizations with budgets under $10 million.

As a rule, the Foundation will not expect to make capital grants (e.g., funding for building, etc.), or grants to individuals.

The Foundation does not fund organizations more frequently than every three years, even if different projects are proposed. For example, an organization that received funding on September 1, 2016 could not apply again for funding until the Spring 2019 application deadline for grants to be awarded on September 1, 2019.

The Foundation will not accept unsolicited oral health proposals.

Pre-Application Information:

There is a two-step process for applying to the Small Grants Program - a Letter of Interest (Step 1) and a Full Application (Step 2). Letters of Interest are due by May 15, 2019.

No later than May 22, 2019, you will receive an email from the Foundation, letting you know whether or not you have been invited to complete your application. If you do not receive an email by May 22, contact Emilie Knight, the Foundation’s Director of Small Grants, at the email address listed below.

If the Foundation invites you to complete an application, an email will be sent to you with additional instructions and directions to click on a link which will take you to a secure page where you will need to complete Part 2 of the application. Part 1 of the application will already be filled out for you, from the information you provided in the Letter of Interest. Review Part 1 to make sure the information is still correct, making changes as necessary.
