Census 2020 Mini-Grants for Nonprofits

Accepting applications now!

Thanks to the generosity of several foundations in the state, Montana Nonprofit Association is launching a competitive, statewide program to award micro-grants to eligible nonprofit organizations to support get-out-the-count activities and events. A priority for funding is 1) Hard-to-Count Communities and 2) hardest to count populations including:

  • Young Children (0-5 years)
  • Low income persons
  • Racial and ethnic minorities
  • Young adults and college students
  • Faith-Based Communal groups (e.g. Hutterites, Mennonites)
  • Highly mobile persons
  • Non-English speakers
  • Persons experiencing homelessness
  • Undocumented immigrants
  • Persons who distrust the government
  • LGBTQ persons
  • Persons with mental or physical disabilities
  • Persons who do not live in traditional housing

Organizations interested in leading activities to support an accurate count in any HTC populations may apply for a micro-grant of up to $5,000 to fund their work. Deadline to apply is May 15th. Awards will be given on a first come first serve basis so don't delay in applying! Stay tuned for the live application.
