Montana Trout Foundation (MTF)
Grants to Montana organizations to enhance and preserve the state’s wild trout resources. Funding is available for scientific research, habitat enhancement, and educational activities. Consideration will be given to applications that address the following fund objectives:
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.
Also keep in mind that an MTF grant can fund initial project assessment, planning, and design that will qualify a project for additional funding through these other sources. Essentially MTF can grant any project that the board deems appropriate based on its mission.
