Grant Money Available

  • Lewis and Clark Commission Makes Grant Money Available - 2/15/01
    The state Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commission announced Tuesday that up to $200,000 in grant money is now available to provide critical, initial funding for planning statewide to commemorate the 200-year anniversary of the Corps of Discovery.

    "We are pleased to offer this program that is now in its second year. This dovetails with the recently approved Bicentennial Master Plan, and allows us to help communities accomplish their planning to commemorate the anniversary," Betty Stone of Glasgow, who is chairman of the Bicentennial Commission, said.

    The Bicentennial Commission, the Tourism Advisory Council/Travel Montana and the Montana Department of Transportation are combining their efforts to make the grant funds available to qualified non-profit organizations. The grants will range from $2,500 to $25,000.

    Last year the grants program received requests totaling $558,000, and 17 projects totaling $200,000 were funded statewide, Commission Executive Director Clint Blackwood said.

    Grant information and application forms are available on the commission's website,, through regional bicentennial commissions, and local chapters of the National Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, or by contacting the state Commission office, PO Box 201203, Helena, MT, 59620-1203 (406-443-2109).
