The Community Heart & Soul Seed Grant Program provides $10,000 in startup funding for resident-driven groups in small cities and towns to implement the Community Heart & Soul model. Grant funding requires a $10,000 cash match from the participating municipality or a partnering organization. This is a brand new initiative and is accepting applications on a rolling basis.
CEI Consultants is currently working with multiple Heart & Soul communities across Maine.
Coaches know what it takes to get things up and running.
