Bullock Announces Grant for Water Improvements in Hot Springs
Funds will provide necessary upgrades to the town's water facilities
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock announced a $450,000 grant to be awarded to Hot Springs to provide necessary upgrades to the town's water facilities, including a new storage tank and transmission water main, as well as extending the water main for improved access to school hydrants.

“The upgrades will create jobs in Hot Springs, and ensure that the community has access to clean, safe water,” Bullock said in a statement. “We want to support the growth of Hot Springs, and updating water infrastructure is a huge step in the right direction.”

The money comes from Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which is meant to promote and develop local communities and their ability to provide essential services.

“For a small community with growing infrastructure and a growing population, this money is a large help to upgrade the water system and provide clean, safe drinking water to the citizens of Hot Springs,” said Mayor Randy Woods. “If it wasn’t for this grant, we wouldn’t be able to make these critical improvements.”
