Request for Community Project Grant Proposals

We are now accepting proposals for Community Project Grants (formerly Regular grants) for amounts between $2,000 and $10,000. 

Community Project Grants have replaced our Regular grants and serve the same purpose and function. We have updated the guidelines and application form, and we now ask that interested applicants contact our grants and evaluation director and complete a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) form in our online grant application portal.

The deadline to apply is December 1, 2023. If you or someone you know might be interested, contact us today.

Humanities Montana recently awarded over $73,000 to humanities projects across the state through our opportunity, film + video, and regular grants. Fifteen organizations received funding during this last grant cycle of 2023. The projects cover a vast array of humanities topics and ideas, including the grizzly bear conflict in the West, preservation of lyrics and music from previously unknown Butte mining songs, and the commissioning of the USS Montana, a nuclear-powered fast-attack submarine, to name a few.

2023 Grant Writing Workshops

October Grant Writing Workshop in Pablo
October Grant Writing Workshop in Pablo

This fall, Humanities Montana’s grants and evaluation director, Megan Sundy, teamed up with The Foundation for Montana History’s program director, Ciara Ryan, and executive director, Charlene Porsild, to facilitate grant writing workshops in White Sulphur Springs, Glendive, and Pablo. The Foundation has been offering these free workshops across the state since 2015, and Humanities Montana was honored to join their program. Each workshop welcomed individuals and groups from a variety of local organizations and provided details of both organizations’ grantmaking programs and shared best practices for drafting successful grant proposals. We look forward to continued collaboration with The Foundation in 2024.
