Coronavirus Relief Fund Advisory Council

The Bullock administration solicited public comment on how best to deploy federal relief dollars made available through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or CARES Act.

In addition to hearing from Montanans across the state, former Governor Bullock assembled an advisory team made up of experts in various facets of our economy to help the state determine where the funds could best serve Montanans, businesses, and our health care system.

The state of Montana received and reviewed 1,416 public comments between April 15, 2020 and April 29, 2020. The chart below shows the bulk of the comments were related to business, health and social services, and tourism.
