Maine health foundation offers funding for state projects


BANGOR (AP) — The Maine Health Access Foundation is providing grants around the state to help implement projects that support local efforts to improve health.

The foundation is giving out grants that total more than $2 million. The foundation says the grants will help communities tackle issues such as substance abuse, obesity, nutrition and aging.

The grants are all for a little less than $190,000.

Recipients include Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County, the city of Bangor and the Aroostook Band of Micmacs.

The health foundation says the grants support local efforts in which a plan is in place to tackle a health issue.
