Great Falls Elks Lodge 214 is accepting applications for community projects for a $3,000 grant funded by Elks National Foundation and the Montana Elks Association.

The grant cannot be used for ongoing fundraising activities. The lodge covers communities in Cascade, Chouteau, Teton, portions of Pondera and other surrounding counties.

Individuals or organizations may submit an application letter explaining their project and the budget to Ken Haugen, secretary, 500 First Ave. S., Great Falls MT 59401 or via email at elks214@bresnan.net. Letters and budgets are due by Dec. 11.
