We will begin accepting applications on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 for the next cycle of Montana Main Street membership.  

The membership application cycle will be opened on an annual basis on October 1 and remain open until December 31. Submitted applications and supporting materials will be evaluated by a review committee. Acceptance into the Montana Main Street Program is competitive and based on community preparedness as well as resource availability at the state level; not every community that applies will be invited to join at the time of application. On average, only 1 to 2 communities are accepted into the program annually. MMS staff is available to assist interested communities throughout the application process, and can provide guidance to those communities not accepted into the program.
