Maine Cancer Foundation Transportation Needs Assessment

In 2017, the Maine Cancer Foundation contracted with MDR to conduct a comprehensive statewide transportation needs assessment. The objective of this assessment was to help the Maine Cancer Foundation better understand the need for transportation service grant funding around the state, improve current operations, and to help develop new opportunities for grant-making in regions most in need of additional services.

Assessment Goals

  • Examine the availability and scope of cancer treatment services by location
  • Understand the distances that cancer patients travel to receive treatment in different regions of the state
