The first phase of Main Street Montana Indian Country saw significant success, from establishing a Tribal Apprenticeship Program to increasing collaboration across state agencies to work more effectively with tribal communities.

The next phase of Main Street Montana, Rural Partners, focuses on reengaging with tribal communities. The Initiative is working with tribal communities to bridge resource and capacity gaps, address challenges unique to Indian County, reduce or eliminate roadblocks to economic success, and connect communities to share opportunities.

We compiled a Tribal and Economic Development Initiatives Report highlighting what tribal communities across both the state and country are doing to innovate and make strides towards increasing economic opportunities in a number of sectors.
