Eastern Plains Economic Development provides grant writing and grant source research for nonprofits, public agencies and businesses throughout the five-county region. We partner with the organization to find funding that meets the needs of the organization. EPEDC has access to a variety of resources that allows us to acquire grants from a broad range of areas. Some of the sources of funding that we use are the State of Montana Community Development Block Grant, Big Sky Trust Fund, Treasure State Endowment Program, MT Tourism Grant, Growth Through Agriculture; from the Federal Government we use funding from the Economic Development Administration, USDA Rural Energy for America Program, Value-Added Agriculture Producer Grants, Rural Business Development Grants and Community Facilities Grant. EPEDC also utilizes a number of private grants that are generally project or region specific.
