Montana Trout Unlimited Chapter Mini-Grant Program

In 2002, Montana TU’s State Council created three investment funds from which earnings can be used to fund specific projects that further MTU’s mission “to conserve, protect and restore Montana’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.” The earnings from these funds are meant for projects that are outside MTU’s annual budget. Two of these funds, the Habitat Protection and Enhancement Fund and the Steve Bryant Wild Trout Stewardship Fund, may be tapped for chapter projects in Montana. To request funding, chapters must submit a fully completed Mini-Grant Application to Proposals are then circulated to the full executive committee for review and decision.  The application deadlines each year are November 1st & April 1st.  Chapters must complete final reporting forms or submit a project update if the project is not yet completed to be eligible for future funding.
