Tribal colleges in Montana receive grants

Helena, Montana (AP) 9-08

Seven tribal colleges in Montana will share nearly $1.9 million in federal grants.

The schools are among 17 tribal colleges, in eight states, that are covered by grants in a rural development program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer announced the grants on Sept. 19. They’re intended for purchase of equipment, classroom construction or renovation, repairs and the improvement of infrastructure.

The Montana colleges are Little Big Horn, Fort Belknap, Stone Child, Salish Kootenai, Chief Dull Knife, Blackfeet Community College and Fort Peck Community College. Most of the schools will get about $272,000.
