Census 2020 Mini-Grants for Nonprofits
Currently, the application portal is closed. It will reopen at the end of June with a primary funding focus on Hard to Count Communities disproportionately impacted by operational delays caused by COVID-19. Please revisit this site then for more information and to apply.
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. Funding for incentives such as gas cards or gift cards is encouraged. Funding for printing costs are discourage as handouts covering the safety, ease, and importance of the census are available for free at census.mt.gov.
Awards will be given on a first come first serve basis so don't delay in applying!
For more insights on how your organization may ensure a fair, accurate, and complete count, watch our webinar! In addition to information on our mini-grants, Executive Director Liz Moore, shares several resources and tools.
