The Closing the Gap Recompete Plan, led by Plenty Doors Community Development Corporation, requests approximately $50 million to upskill the tribal workforce and grow tribal businesses on the Crow Reservation in Montana. After the closure of the Absaloka coal mine, the Crow Reservation has experienced job loss and economic distress. This Recompete Plan will rebuild a tribal-led economy through eight strategic investments in critical infrastructure, business supports, and vocational training on the reservation. These investments build on successful entrepreneurial and vocational training pilot projects in partnership with a tribal college, a Community Development Financial Institution, and state agencies.
