The Community Forum will review and approve the small project grant applications at their monthly meetings which are held on the fourth Thursday of each month. Small project grants can be used for individual projects or combined with other matching funds / grants. Applicants must work with the Neighborhoods Coordinator on marketing or giving recognition to the Neighborhood Councils and/or Community Forum in some way.
Each year, the Missoula City Council allocates funding for Neighborhood Project Funds which are broken down into two categories, funds for large grants and funds for small grants. The allocation is usually $20,000 per year, with $18,000 targeted for the large grants, and $2,000 allocated for the small grant program. The process and amounts of grants differ depending on the category.
