The money will help repair damages to homes and businesses.

“Last year’s storm hit northeast Montana communities hard, leaving folks without critical power to maintain their homes, take care of their families, and run their businesses.

“It is great to see northeastern Montanans finally get the support they need to return to normalcy. Montanans face many natural disasters, but their resiliency is unmatched,” Rosendale said.
