The Big Sky Economic Development Trust Fund Program (BSTF) Planning funds are awarded to eligible applicants to assist with economic development planning efforts that promote long-term, stable economic growth in Montana. Applications, which support a critical activity to move an economic development project forward and directly assist a basic sector company, are the highest priority for the Department.
Applications will be accepted on an open-cycle basis until all available funds are committed to approved projects.
Please reference the application information and guidelines for further information on the eligible activities and requirements for funding. It is highly recommended that potential applicants contact the Department for guidance and funding availability before submitting a formal application. This is especially important due to the limited funding available statewide.
