Systems Improvement and Innovation Responsive Grants (SIIRG) provide Funding for organizations in Maine working to improve or innovate services to be more responsive to the health needs of their communities in the areas of:

  • Rural health
  • Aging/older adults
  • Behavioral health/substance use disorder
  • Maternal and child health

Projects should focus on changing systems, services, policies, practices, and perceptions that create barriers to access and care, as well address systemic inequities that perpetuate stigma, bias, and racism. Proposals that can demonstrate meaningful community participation will receive stronger consideration.


Eligible Maine-based applicants include:

  • Nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations
  • Nonprofit organizations without 501(c)(3) status with a suitable fiscal sponsor
  • State, local, and tribal governments
  • Educational institutions
