Rural Montana Recieves Nearly $29 Million For Police, Fire And Schools

This week, nearly $29 million dollars were distributed in rural Montana in the form of PILT (payment in lieu of taxes).

PILT program eligibility is reserved for local governments (mostly rural counties) that contain non-taxable federal lands and provide vital services, such as public safety, housing, social services and transportation.

These jurisdictions provide significant support for national parks, wildlife refuges and recreation areas throughout the year. PILT seeks to compensate them for their support and foregoing tax revenue from these federal lands.

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell announced today that 56 local governments in Montana are receiving a total of $28,809,242 under the 2014 Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) program.
