Yellowstone Country Assistance Network is a grassroots nonprofit organization founded in 2007 by the Park County Tripartite Board. We work to support local organizations working with low-income families. Our goal is to increase their capacity. Yellowstone Country Assistance Network drives change with proven solutions to remove obstacles, and advance those living in poverty into economic independence—because progress for the community is progress for everyone.
Wyoming Community Foundation Grant Award
Yellowstone Country Assistance Network was also awarded a generous grant of $5,000.00 from the Wyoming Community Foundation- COVID- 19 Response and Recovery Fund – WYCF. This grant will help with essential services related to response and recovery related to COVID-19 in Park, Big Horn, Hot Springs, and Washakie County.

Community Services Block Grants
The Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) provides funds to alleviate the causes and conditions of poverty in communities. Yellowstone Country Assistance Network contracts with the Wyoming Department of Health Community Services Program to provide these services.
While our grants provide a tremendous amount of support to the Big Horn Basin we still have areas of unmet needs, or areas that are not allowable under our grant contracts, that is where donations come in. Our grants have very specific income requirements and sometimes families in need are over that threshold but still have an immediate need.
In partnership with local service providers, empower people living in the Big Horn Basin of Wyoming to enhance health, housing, and employment status, overcome obstacles, and end economic hardship.
We envision communities in the Big Horn Basin which the most vulnerable people will have the power to lift themselves out of poverty and create vital, healthy lives for their families and communities now and in the future.
