Daines Announces Over $200K for Montana’s Justice System

U.S. SENATE — U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced that $239,140 will be granted to the Montana Department of Corrections to support substance abuse treatment and student loan repayment programs.

“I’m glad to see Montana receive these resources to support our justice system through important initiatives like substance abuse treatment for inmates and student loan repayment programs for public defenders and prosecutors,” Daines said. 

 The $239,140 will be distributed to the following programs:

  • $206,764 to the Montana 2021 Residential Substance Abuse Treatment for State Prisoners Program.
  • $32,376 to the Montana 2021 John R. Justice Student Loan Repayment Program. 

Daines helped secure this funding through the U.S. Department Justice in December 2020.
