Overview:

Montana COVID-19 Fund

Montana Nonprofit Association (MNA) and Montana Community Foundation (MCF) have partnered to create and administer the Montana COVID–19 Fund. This statewide fund will provide safety-net funding for Montana's rural and tribal communities adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund will specifically support those communities that do not have established community-specific funds.

Rural and tribal communities are far more vulnerable in disaster and lack the capacity and resources to respond to disaster in the same way urban cores do. The focus of the Montana COVID-19 Fund is to support these vulnerable communities, enabling them to better manage uncertainty and seek opportunity as they come out of this crisis. The fund also hopes to support rural resiliency that minimizes disruptions, helps ensure rapid recovery, with little loss of economic or social value, and reduces reliance on limited federal resources. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • The fund will grant directly to nonprofit intermediary organizations (community foundations, United Ways, etc.) and rural tribal communities for re-granting in the areas identified by the Partnership Group.

Ineligibility:

  • Grants will not be made directly to individuals or private businesses or to individual nonprofits.
