Maine State System


Please Note!

The Department of Health and Human Services is in the process of re-organizing.
Names of departments, bureaus, and offices are changing.
Same of their functions may be changing, too.


We will make sure to update all of the links on these pages.
After all the function and name changes have occurred,
we will update the information on these pages.


Thank you for your patience!!



Services provided by state agencies are usually organized by funding sources rather than by consumers' needs.  To get the services that you, a family member or a client needs, you may have to talk to many different departments or bureaus within the state system.  To complicate matters, some of the program names can be very similar, but they may provide different services.  Sometimes departments provide services to you directly; more often they contract to community-based providers.  

In this document we have listed the state agencies that consumers with disabilities are likely to contact. The information for each department or office includes the following:

  • a brief description of the department or office;
  • the people they serve;
  • the names of the programs or offices they administer;
  • the types of programs and services that they provide or pay for; and
  • contact Information.

This is meant to be a guide to help you find the state office or offices that you need. We have not included all the functions of all the departments - just the services that might be accessed by persons with disabilities. Click on the "Directory of Services" to start.
