Why did the City of Missoula get direct funding?

As a “metro city” with a population over 50,000, the City of Missoula received a direct allocation from the U.S. Treasury. Great Falls and Billings were the other two cities in Montana who received a direct allocation (other Montana cities receive their ARPA funding through the State). We received half of our total direct allocation in May 2021, and we are scheduled to receive the other half in May or June of 2022.
