Grant opportunities listed below.

Montana State Parks Recreation Grants

Montana State Parks administers the Recreational Trails Program (RTP), a federally funded grants program that supports Montana’s trails. The RTP funds come from the Federal Highway Trust Fund, and represent a portion of the motor fuel excise tax collected from nonhighway recreational fuel use: fuel used for off-highway recreation by snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, off-highway motorcycles, and off-highway light trucks.

KaBoom Grants

Children are missing out on the childhood they deserve without access to playgrounds and recreation. Play is disappearing in homes, schools, and communities. KaBoom offers several grant possibilities. Not a Playful City yet? Check out their website to see how you can add your city to the list.
