Does your family have an Alfond Grant?

Children born as Maine residents in 2013 and later have automatically been awarded the $500 Alfond Grant. For Maine kids born in 2008-2012 the grant was available on a more limited basis, click here to learn more. ASF hopes that the Alfond Grant serves as a catalyst to families, friends, employers, community leaders and other champions across the state who can also be inspired to invest in the future of Maine’s children and by extension, the future prosperity of the State. There are numerous ways for others to help, including making their own contributions for a child’s future education, utilizing tools on to support a child’s growth and development, and helping to create a culture of high aspirations for the future of Maine kids, and the state.
