Montana-Wyoming tribes win substance abuse grant
The Montana-Wyoming Tribal Leaders Council has received a $5.7 million grant to help tribal members receive substance abuse treatment.

The money will be used by the Rocky Mountain Tribal Access to Recovery. The program provides vouchers to tribal members in Montana and Wyoming who need substance abuse treatment but can't afford it.

The grant is part of the Access to Recovery program at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Four other tribes and tribal organizations -- the Alaska Southcentral Foundation ($5 million), the California Rural Indian Health Board ($14.5 million), the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, Inc. ($11.7 million) and the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma ($10.2 million) -- received funds.
