The Montana Coal Board

Program Overview


The Coal Board awards grants pursuant to 90-6-207, MCA, which provides the priorities for grants to counties, communities, school districts, or other governmental units that, as a result of the impact of coal development, has had or expects to have a net increase or decrease in estimated population.

The Coal Board statutes do not specifically prohibit any type of project from eligibility for Coal Board funds. For any application submitted, the main priority is clearly defining the need represented in the application with the impact that coal development/consumption has in the community represented by the applicant.
