Study Highlights Rural Challenges For Utilizing Infrastructure Dollars

In: News Headlines

A new study by Headwaters Economics based in Bozeman finds many rural communities could lack the capacity to effectively access funding from the infrastructure law. Director of the organization Patty Hernandez says Montana stands out for its capacity limitations. Indigenous communities like              Browning and Lame Deer lack the resources to access funding at a far higher rate than other communities and also are at high risk of floods and wildfires. She says Montana communities that are being discovered as outdoor recreation destinations which is creating high demand for housing are in similar situations.
