  • Senator Jon Tester Secures $61 Million for Montana Small Businesses Through American Rescue Plan

    “Montana’s economic development community is thankful for Senator Tester’s leadership in helping to secure these SSBCI funds for our state from the Treasury Department,” said Paul Tuss, Executive Director of Bear Paw Development Corporation, a five-county, two-reservation Economic Development District based in Havre. “Through a partnership with the Montana Department of Commerce, these funds will be used to help Main Street businesses start-up or expand, leading to more jobs, an expanded tax base and a more robust economy for our entire state. In northern Montana, our organization looks forward to partnering with area banks and the private sector to deploy these funds so small businesses in our rural area have the capital they need to be successful.”
