Please complete the application to the best of your ability.  Since our funding is limited, we're focusing our efforts on Montana families with the greatest financial need who complete the process with integrity and demonstrate their ability to provide a loving home consistent with the founding principles and values of LHC.  Basically, we want to see God's Big Sky people go get some kids!  Grants are for residents of Montana who reside in Montana.  In the case of limited resources priority will be given to people residing in Missoula or Ravalli county.

During our review process, we may contact you to elaborate on and verify portions of your application.

Step one is to successfully submit the online portion.  Your submission will be received and reviewed for completeness and accuracy.  The process cannot continue until the online portion is received in its entirety; a thorough initial submission will expedite the process. When you've completed and successfully submitted your application you'll receive notification via e-mail. 

Please move on to step 2 following the completion of this application.
