Senator Jon Tester Secures $1 Million for Montana Economic Development Through American Rescue Plan
U.S. Senator Jon Tester today announced $1 million in American Rescue Plan funding from the U.S. Department of Commerce to facilitate planning and coordination for the distribution of economic development resources in Montana to support Montana small businesses and grow the economy.
“As Montana continues to rebound from this pandemic, it’s critical that we address the economic gaps exposed by COVID-19,” said Tester. “We’re seeing the positive effects of the American Rescue Plan every day across Montana, and these resources will support small businesses across our state, create good paying jobs, and ensure that our economic recovery continues. I urge state officials to get these funds out the door as soon as possible.”
