The Maine Charity Foundation Fund provides grants for community-based transportation programs that provide transportation and/or delivery services to older people with limited or no access to transportation. Funds may be used to support ongoing operations or to plan and/or implement a new program. Projects in rural areas are a priority.

Additional priorities are projects that:

  • Use volunteers and have community partners
  • Provide information and connections to assist riders with meeting other needs beyond transportation
  • Address inequities and engage a diverse range of community members
  • Meet gaps in services or provide service where there is none or not enough currently
  • Creatively use existing resources
  • Are clearly laid out and ready to implement

Eligible applicants include:

  • Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations
  • Municipalities
  • Public schools
  • Public agencies working for the State of Maine
  • Tribal governments recognized by the Department of the Interior
  • Non-exempt groups with a fiscal sponsor that is a 501(c)(3) organization, public school, or public agency
