Grant Eligibility

Nonprofit organizations that support the citizens of Bismarck, Mandan, and the surrounding communities are encouraged to apply for a grant. Organizations must be a 501(c)(3) or government entity.

After the June 30 deadline, the Advisory Committee will review projects and narrow the list of candidates. Those selected to move on will be asked to provide a full proposal by September 1.
