LEWIS AND CLARK AWARDS $31,450 IN LOCAL GRANTS - 7/3/03
Earlier this spring eight projects received funding totaling $54,500.
The commission received 52 applications for projects totaling $825,492 under this year’s Project Grant Program, newly elected Commission Chair Hal Stearns of Missoula said. “We are very pleased to be able to fulfill our commitment to the remaining 2003 grant applicants,” Stearns said.
This year the Department of Commerce contributed $50,000 to fund the project grant program and the Commission supplemented it with an additional $35,950. The sale of bicentennial license plates provides critical funding for the Commission’s Grants Program, but businesses or individuals interested in supporting projects in other ways can call 406-443-2109, said Clint Blackwood, Commission Executive Director.
Each of the organizations receiving grants must contribute $1 of in kind labor and/or materials or cash to receive $2 in project grant funds, Blackwood said.
