Montana Department of Justice (DOJ) Motor Vehicle Division
Grants to Montana nonprofit organizations that have a primary purpose of helping critically and chronically ill children and their families. Organizations will use funds to provide an ill child with a special wish. Please note that to qualify, the child’s wish must be determined by the parents or legal guardians in consultation with the child and an attending healthcare provider.
These funds are made available through a special Chrome for Kids motorcycle license plate that is used to fund efforts by Montana-based nonprofit corporations which grant wishes to chronically or critically ill Montana children.
This program supports the following type of wishes:
(a) A visit to a special place such as a children’s theme park or a city or metropolitan area to experience unique or different food, arts, education, entertainment, and culture;
(b) A trip to participate in or observe a special activity such as a rodeo, baseball game, surfing, or other physical/sports activity;
(c) Financial assistance to provide improvement in the quality of life for the critically or chronically ill child as determined by the attending physician and parents/legal guardian; or
(d) A special activity such as a birthday party or celebration of the child’s life as determined by parents/legal guardian.
No more than 10% of awarded grant funds can be used for program administration by the applicant.
