Grants of up to $10,000 to Iowa nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and educational institutions in eligible locations for programs and projects that strive to improve the quality of life for residents. Funding is intended to address present and emerging needs within Montana county by making grants in the following areas:

  • Arts and Culture: Provide or increase access to theater, music, arts, dance, museums, historical events.
  • Civic: Community betterment/beautification, city government, emergency services, citizen participation, parks and recreation.
  • Education: Early childhood development/daycare, primary, secondary, and continuing education; libraries.

Priority consideration will be given to projects and programs that:

  • Have potential for long-term impact.
  • Have been planned in light of overall community and/or county needs.
  • Have been developed in collaboration with other nonprofit entities or volunteer groups.
  • Do not duplicate existing services.
  • Will help those not being adequately served by existing community or county resources.
  • Show the greatest promise of leveraging additional support. A request that seeks a portion of the total support needed for the project or program will generally receive greater priority than one which looks to the MCCPF as the only funding source.
