State Highway Traffic Safety Section- Law Enforcement Mini-Grant Program

The Law Enforcement Mini-Grant Program is a grant offered to assist Montana’s less populated communities with the need for increased law enforcement patrols associated with events such as rodeos, county fairs, concerts, and other large gatherings.  It also allows these communities the opportunity to participate in the National Crackdown seatbelt and impaired driving campaigns (Memorial Day and Labor Day).  These grants can be used to reimburse for overtime patrols focusing on impaired driving and seatbelt laws.
