Apply for a Grant

How to Apply

Applying for a grant sounds daunting, but there are clear and concise lists of exactly what you need to gather and prepare to make the process easier. The one thing to remember right from the beginning is that grants can only be awarded to 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, schools, cities, counties, and churches. If you are none of those things, consider asking a qualified group of the former list to allow your application to pass through them.

Grant applications through the Cheyenne County Impact Fund  are accepted annually during the month of March and awarded the following May. Please visit this site to apply for a grant.

Grant applications through the St. Francis New Generation Fund are accepted annually during the month of March and awards are announced May 1. Please visit this site to apply for a grant.

Hansen Community Pass Through Grants

Over the last few years the Dane G. Hansen foundation has gifted each of their 26 affiliated counties $100,000 per year to give as grants. Applications are accepted monthly until the funds run out and are due by the end of each month. Two installments of $50,000 are given each year, once in March and again in September.
