The 2022 Program is completed. The next round for 2023 will begin late in the year. The information below should be helpful in anticipating the next round for those interested in applying.
The purpose of the MNPS Small Grants Program is to stimulate research, conservation, and educational activities that help foster an appreciation for Montana’s native plants and plant communities. These grants are intended to promote native plant conservation through better understanding of our native flora and the factors affecting their survival.
The deadline for proposals is January 31 each year. Grants will then be awarded by March 15.
We encourage anyone with a project that potentially qualifies for an MNPS Small Grant to consider submitting a proposal!
APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Please download the 2022 Small Grants Proposal Form available here and carefully follow the instructions there in preparing and submitting your proposal.
