As the state of Montana gets ready to start distributing more than $1 billion in federal COVID-19 relief money, the 56 state counties will soon be receiving just over $200 million. The funding was allocated to counties based on their population, with each county receiving approximately $194 per resident. That means Montana’s largest counties will receive the most. According to MTN News, the rules haven’t been finalized but it’s expected counties will have to put all of this money to use by the end of 2024.
