Gallatin County is receiving $22 million from the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The Gallatin County Commission is in the process of deciding on what to do with these critical dollars.
These funds are meant to support services ranging from basic infrastructure, broadband, business, housing, and health and human services.

Commissioners are committed to a decision-making process defined by careful thought, inclusive dialogue, strategic coordination with other local governments and community stakeholders, and eventually, decisive actions that make sustainable investments in our county and its citizens.
To begin this process, the Gallatin County Commission held listening sessions to explore opportunities in the following categories:
- Economic recovery and housing
- Behavioral health
- Water and sewer infrastructure
Next, the Gallatin County Commission will decide on a process of administering ARPA funds.
If you have ideas for projects in these categories, an argument for considering other authorized uses, or comments on the process of administering these funds, the Gallatin County Commission would love to hear from you. Provide your feedback by:
- Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Calling 582-3000
- Mailing or dropping off comments to Gallatin County Commission, 311 W. Main St., Room 306, Bozeman, MT 59715
There are currently no upcoming meetings to discuss ARPA items. But we will update this as soon as meetings are scheduled in the future!
