The Montana Swiming Spring Reach Out Grant applications are due March 16. Applications should be submitted to Susan Huckeby, MT Swimming Diversity and Inclusion Chair.
In October 2018 The Hardin Otters Swim Team and the Bozeman Brookies were each awarded $1250 Reach Out grants.
The purpose of the Montana Swimming Reach Out Grant Program is to increase multicultural, socioeconomic, and ethnic diversity as well as encourage those who are disabled to participate in all levels of the sport of competitive swimming. Montana Swimming wants to encourage swimmers to achieve excellence in and out of the pool through this innovative grant program. It is intended that this grant will be used to reach out to underrepresented groups - including ethnic minorities, low income outreach persons, LGBTQ, and disabled persons - in the overall community.
Montana Swimming Reach Out Grant is funded in the amount of $5000 per year. Grant applications will be accepted twice a year. There is a maximum amount of $2500 total per grant period to be awarded. Grants are not inteneded to fund general team finances. Applications may be submitted by Montana Swimming member clubs.
