Here is our Top 15 for this week celebrating work and successes to grow and strengthen the Great Falls regional economy — Montana’s Golden Triangle. And, sharing business resources and skill-building opportunities to empower your success.
1) The Great Falls MSA (Cascade County) economy grew by $106 million in 2019, reaching $4.124 billion. Private industries represented 85% of this growth, increasing by $89 million while government grew by $17 million. Private industries now comprise 80% of our local economy and government 20%.

3) High Plains Financial’s Board approved an SBA 504 loan and we submitted the package to the SBA for approval. This is for a business that currently leases space and wants to expand in Downtown Great Falls. This client has the opportunity to purchase a building, renovate and even add some equipment to their existing business! If you are in the process of buying or building commercial real estate and would like a loan with a low down payment and a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan, please contact Jill Kohles at 406-590-1056 or [email protected].
