Grants to Montana organizations for projects that promote the preservation and restoration of the State's wild trout population. Priority will be given to projects that improve the wild trout habitat. Funding may also be used to support research and educational initiatives to raise awareness.

The primary objectives of the MTF are:

1. To preserve and enhance the wild trout resources of Montana by the encouragement, support and funding of scientific research, education, and habitat enhancement projects.

2. To promote relevant educational activities in order to create a better awareness among the general public of the need for and value of the improvement and maintenance of open spaces, of wild trout habitat, and of the natural environment, whether public or private, with emphasis on the preservation of water quality and on the prevention, detection, and correction of water pollution.

An MTF grant can fund initial project assessment, planning, and design that will qualify a project for additional funding through these other sources

There is no specific limit for grants, although past history shows that the average grant amount typically falls between $2,500 and $15,000.

MTF funds may not be used to pay indirect costs.

Grant proposals for each calendar year are due on or before November 15 of that year. Funding decisions will be made at the early winter meeting of the MTF Board of Directors. Applicants will be notified promptly of these decisions.
