Anderson Elementary in Gallatin County
Quality Schools Grant Program
The Community Development Division houses the Quality Schools Grant Program. The Program, created by HB 152 (Chapter 377, Laws 2009) and codified at Section 90-6-801, et seq., MCA, provides a competitive grant program for (1) school facility and technology grants; (2) matching planning grants; and (3) emergency grants for public school districts in Montana (elementary districts and high school districts as defined in 20-6-101, MCA, or a K-12 school district as defined in 20-6-701, MCA).
The funds for Quality Schools grants come from the timber harvest on common school trust lands, and rental income received from power site leases as provided in 77-4-208, MCA, deposited into the school facility and technology account.
