Communities and school districts impacted by the growth or decline of natural resource development can now apply for a portion of $21.5 million in funds for needed infrastructure investments. The Delivering Local Assistance Program was created as part of a $400 million infrastructure investment package passed by the 2019 Legislature and signed by Gov. Bullock.
Delivering Local Assistance focuses grant dollars to local governments and school districts for a range of infrastructure projects including water, sewer, bridge, public safety, government administration and schools.
The Community Development Division at the Montana Department of Commerce is administering the new infrastructure program. Interested communities and school districts can apply for grant funds until Sept. 30, 2019. Awards will be made in the fall of 2019.
