Grant Writing Services
For years, Fort Belknap Planning Department has partnered with economic development, employment and training, justice, fish and wildlife, construction, housing authority, tourism, education, health and human services, and other agencies to develop high-quality grant proposals, resulting in over $5.4 million in funded programs over the past 2 years with a 80% success rate.  While these awarded funds created 21 full time and 8 part time jobs, we are most proud of the quality of programs our Tribal Organizations have implemented using these funds to create opportunities to improve lives.
