Funded projects include programs and services for:

  • Preventive health programs

  • Family planning programs
  • Hospice
  • People living with disabilities
  • Survivors of abuse or domestic violence
  • Food banks

A complete list of program examples and specific grant guidelines are available on the program website. While most funding is provided for direct services and programs, the foundation makes a limited number of grants for capital improvements and construction.

Eligible applicants are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that serve rural areas of Idaho and/or Montana.

Government entities or agencies such as schools, fire departments, and libraries are also eligible.
