The grants, which are funded by state general obligation bonds, can be used to pay the costs of peer-reviewed biomedical research and therapy development, recruiting scientists and students and acquiring innovative technologies at Montana biomedical research organizations. I-181 provides specifics for the Montana Biomedical Research Authority’s membership, powers, staffing, grant eligibility and evaluation requirements, and reporting requirements. I-181 authorizes the creation of state bond debts for $20 million per year for a period of ten years. State general fund costs for debt service and other expenses would be $17.38 million total for the first four years and peak at $16 million per year for fiscal years 2027-2037.
