What We Do
The Missoula County Department of Grants and Community Programs works to improve the quality of life for our community. Staff identify needs in the community and work to secure resources to meet those needs, often in collaboration with other City and County departments and non-profit and for-profit entities.
Resources for funding include grants and loans from federal, state, county, and private entities. Staff research funding opportunities and write or package applications for those funds. In addition to preparing grant applications and administering the funds, increasing public awareness about community issues is a critical role of the Grants and Community Programs department.
