State of Montana Cost Share Information


The 2005 Montana Legislature passed HB 540 authorizing $10 Million in general obligation bonds towards state cost share rehabilitation of the St. Mary Facilities. This source of funding remains available; however, issuance of the bonds is contingent upon a federal cost share agreement and participation among the key stakeholders, which include the State of Montana, Federal Government, Milk River Project Water Users and the Blackfeet Tribe.  The federal cost share agreement must provide assurance that state funds spent on rehabilitation of any part of the St. Mary's system are credited to the non-federal share of an all-encompassing rehabilitation of the St. Mary Diversion and Conveyance Works.
