About Our Annual Grants:
We’ve just begun our review of the Letters of Interest submitted for our Annual Grants Program. This year, in an effort to address issues of gender parity, we added an eligibility requirement that the board and staff leadership of the applicant organizations reflect the population meant to benefit from the grant. This new expectation will change the future for organizations like Maine Community Integration, who has very successfully reconfigured much of their organizational leadership in the last two years!
