Opportunity's Empowerment Fund is a grant program available to our clients for a variety of life-enhancing purposes. Apply to the Empowerment Fund below.
The Opportunity Resources Empowerment Fund provides grants to people who are served by ORI. The fund provides a lifeline to one of Montana's most vulnerable populations; at least 98% of our adult clients live at or below the low-income poverty line. The Empowerment Fund, established in 2014, provides grants of $500 or less. Requests are limited to one per fiscal year. Grants can be used to fund equipment, assistive technology, work-related tools or clothing, unusual transportation costs, recreational needs, and education enrichment opportunities or housing expenses.
These grants are available to any person in Montana who is served by ORI and whose application is approved. We actively solicit donations to secure the necessary funds to offer an individual the financial 'hand-up' they need. Please fill out the application below to be considered to receive funds from the Empowerment Fund.
