What is the Colstrip Impacts Foundation (CIF)?

CIF is a volunteer committee of the Montana Community Foundation (MCF) comprised of Colstrip community members. The committee is responsible for grantmaking from two funds at MCF- $2.5 million in a permanent fund and $7.5 million in a nonpermanent fund- received as a result of the Puget Sound Energy rate case settlement with the State of Montana. In the settlement, PSE agreed to set aside $10 million to fund community development and other impacts to the Colstrip area.
