Resilient Montana

Program Updates


In 2015, the State of Montana participated in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC), a competitive grant process that awarded nearly $1 billion to states and communities for innovative projects that addressed natural disaster mitigation, response, and recovery. The State of Montana did not ultimately receive funding, however, the Phase I and Phase II applications informed the Department of Commerce’s decision to pursue a more proactive, holistic, and collaborative approach. On March 27, 2015, the Phase I Application was submitted. To view the application please click on the following links:
