Thank you for your interest in the RMHC Maine grants program. After careful consideration regarding COVID-19 and the impact it has made on our fundraising efforts, the RMHC Maine grants program has been suspended for the 2020 calendar year. We look forward to moving ahead when the time is right, so please check back June 2021 for program updates.


Thank you for your interest in RMHC Maine Grants Program. Please review all grant guidelines prior to submission of your request. We welcome grant requests from qualified 501(c)(3) organizations in Maine and northern New Hampshire.

All of the required files/materials must be uploaded before submitting. All required materials must be included at time of submission. An incomplete application will not be considered for a grant.

It is the understanding of RMHC Maine that awarded funds will be used for the purpose specified in the grant proposal following all applicable state and federal laws and regulations. Should the proposed use of funds change, a revised proposal must be submitted in writing and approval may or may not be granted.

RMHC Maine requires the awarded organization submit a detailed accounting within one year from the date funds were disbursed. This form can be found on the website.
