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 the other half in May 2022.
