The Elmina B. Sewall Foundation has announced the applications for Healthy People Healthy Places Grants Program.
- Organizations led by and serving people in under-resourced populations and geographies, including: African Americans, Indigenous, and people of color; immigrants and refugees; LGBTQ; people with low incomes; differently-abled populations; incarcerated populations; people in recovery; and populations who are homeless or at risk of homelessness
- Collaborative, cross-sector, or grassroots efforts to coordinate or develop new approaches in their field or sector, a geographic region, or a specific community or population
- Efforts that are explicit in their commitment to social, environmental, and racial justice
- Efforts that integrate the well-being of communities and the environment
Grants will generally be in the $10,000 to $50,000 range to an individual organization and up to $200,000 for collaborative requests. There may be some variation between focus areas, so they recommend checking the specific focus area information sheets or with the focus area staff for guidance on your request. Organizations can apply for individual organization support in addition to being part of a collaborative request.
- Applicants must be eligible to receive tax-deductible donations as outlined in Section 170(c) of the Internal Revenue Code. This includes: 501(c)(3) federal tax-exempt organizations; public schools; public agencies working for the State of Maine; Indian tribal governments (and their political subdivisions) recognized by the Department of the Interior
- They accept applications from organizations and groups who work through a fiscal sponsor. A fiscally sponsored organization does not need to be a legal entity, but it must have a signed fiscal sponsorship agreement with a 501c3 nonprofit organization. If you are an organization that is fiscally sponsored, please answer the application question as they pertain to the applicant organization or collaborative, not the fiscal sponsor.
- Eligible organizations may apply regardless of their funding history with Sewall Foundation
