    The amount of money towns with less than 50,000 people will receive through federal funds allocated to the state through the American Rescue Plan Act was announced Thursday in a press release from the governor’s office.

    “The federal funds we’re distributing today give local governments the authority to address the unique needs of their communities,” Gov. Greg Gianforte said in the release. “Cities and towns may use these funds to assist residents, small businesses, and industries impacted by the pandemic or to invest in infrastructure, including water, sewer, or broadband.”

    ARPA included $14 million for cities and towns, but the state acts as a pass-through entity for municipalities under 50,000 people. The amount each town will receive was decided through criteria set forth by the U.S. Department of Treasury. The disbursements are the first in a series of payments that will be made throughout June.
