The Department of Commerce is pleased to house 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.
