Planned Praxis Center in Butte, Montana gets $200,000 in county funds

March 8, 2018View for printing

Commissioners steered $200,000 in Hard Rock economic development money to the planned $35 million Praxis medical training center in Butte Wednesday night.

The approval takes the Hard Rock fund down to zero, or very close to it, officials said, but some commissioners said before the meeting that the allocation was a "slam dunk" anyway.

That's because the project is expected to create 70 new jobs, bring 3,000 to 4,000 doctors, nurses, EMTs and others here each year to receive training, and deliver a big economic boost to Butte and its Uptown.
