Press release

The Hill County Community Foundation has announced six grant recipients for the 2020 grant cycle.

The HCCF 2020 grant cycle was very competitive with the committee receiving 11 applications for funding.

This year’s grantees include CASA of Hill County, the Associated Students of Montana State University-Northern — ASMSUN — the Hill County 4-H Foundation, the Havre Eagle’s Manor, Roses Helping Hands in partnership with Bear Paw Development Corp. and Havre Trails Inc.

HCCF had a total of $3,000 to grant out this year and each organization received a $500 grant. Each grantee was awarded for their respective projects in one of three HCCF focus areas: basic human needs, arts and culture, and community beautification.

CASA of Hill County will be using their grant funds to provide basic needs to children in Hill County who enter the foster care system as a result of abuse or neglect. Items are delivered within the first few days of placement to alleviate stressors on the child and foster family.

The ASMSUN grant will help fund an on-campus food pantry for students who are food insecure.

The Hill County 4-H Foundation grant will be used to help fund the completion of a cement sidewalk for Hill County 4-H’s Chuckwagon on the Great Northern Fairgrounds in the front of this community space.

The Havre Eagle’s Manor will be using their grant funds to help brighten up and make some improvements to their dining room and social areas.

Roses Helping Hands in partnership with Bear Paw Development grant funds will help provide basic needs for individuals in the Rocky Boy area who face transportation barriers and who are in a 14-day quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 test or via contact tracing.

Havre Trails is collaborating with Beaver Creek Park to install a new 9-hole disc golf course on the east side of Rotary Pond and their grant funds will be used toward the completion of this fun project.

HCCF is an affiliate of the Montana Community Foundation, whose mission is to cultivate a culture of giving to empower Montana communities to flourish. As a community foundation, HCCF helps Hill County through the power of permanently endowed funds. HCCF welcomes donations and awards the annual interest of the endowment fund to local projects as grants. Since 2005, HCCF has granted out just more than $31,000 to more than 40 Hill County nonprofits.

As the fiscal year comes to a close, HCCF seeks donations from the public to grow the HCCF endowment. As the endowment grows, more money will be reinvested into the Hill County community. All of the 2019 grant applicants were deserving, and HCCF hopes to be able to fund even more projects next year.
