Take advantage of the fire dollars – for your local economy

This message is from Steve Simonson:

I attended the National Fire Plan Update meeting held in Missoula this past
Tuesday and feel that MEDA members need to be informed of some of the
that were presented for accessing fire dollars in Montana.

Both the US Forest Service and BLM have grant programs to reduce fuel
and they need sponsorship from a non profit as most community and economic
organizations are.

Rick Stowell is the Forest Service contact in Missoula at 406.329.3420 or
Ewing 329.3848
Pat Mullaney is the BLM contact in Billings at
BLM grants are 100%, no match due 7/1/02, all federal lands qualify, not
BLM if its in your County or not!

Also will get contracting opportunities up. Creating
communities is in the best interest of economic developers in Montana.
