It’s official. The Daly Mansion is receiving $25,715 for completion of the front porch restoration. The total cost of the project, according to the Daly Mansion Preservation Trust of Hamilton, is $41,715. The wooden surface is integral part of the east-facing main entrance of the building, with its four columns and wrap-around feature around the north side of the building.

The money is coming from the Montana Department of Commerce’s Tourism Infrastructure Investment Program (TIIP) grant program. This year’s projects that were funded included the Hamilton Daly Mansion project, along with projects in Billings, Polson, Shelby, Terry, Charlo, Cooke City, Helena, Lewistown, Whitehall and West Yellowstone.

Another Bitterroot Valley organization received funding from the TIIP Grants. The Bitterroot Cross Country Ski Club will get $22,000 to help buy new trail grooming equipment to used on the popular Chief Joseph Pass cross country ski trails, east of Lost Trail Pass. The total cost will be $33,273. The club does the maintenance each year as a free service to the public.

Both organizations were notified earlier this year that they had “made the cut” in the competition for the grants.

The TIIP grants totaled $550,000 this year. The money comes from the 4-percent Montana Lodging Facility Use Tax. The grants are awarded through a competitive process and require a $1 match for every $2 provided by the Commerce Department.
