Steele-Reese Foundation Idaho and Montana Grant Program
Application: Apr 1, 2021
The foundation requests that email be used for brief initial inquiries to determine whether formal applications are warranted and for follow-up correspondence.
The Steele-Reese Foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations in Idaho and Montana working in the areas of rural health, human and social services, education, conservation and preservation, arts and humanities, and native communities.
Funded projects include programs and services for:
- Preventive health programs
- Medical clinics and small hospitals
- EMS and ambulance units
- Family planning programs
- People living with disabilities
- Survivors of abuse or domestic violence
- Food banks
- Fire protection
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.
Awards typically range between $5,000 - $50,000.
In some cases, especially with larger grants, awards are payable only after the grantee has raised either a matching amount or has secured the remaining balance for the proposed project.
Submit a letter of intent (LOI) through the online portal by Jan. 29, 2021. Only the first 125 LOIs received will be accepted. Selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal, with a deadline of April 1, 2021.
