Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

Agency, Montana

Latest population count has Agency having a population of 324. There are 90 housing units in the settlement, which means the average housing unit size at Agency, is near four person per household. There is one main location of the CDP where around 50 or more housing units, the clinic, government buildings, and the school are located. The remaining housing units are widely spread out across the 8.6 sq. mi. the CDP covers. The elevation of Agency is 3,725 feet above sea level. The high elevation means the settlement has cooler summers than the lower elevations on the plains. FIPS code is 30-00587. About 25% of the settlements population lives below the poverty line, which means the location has a job flow. It is the seat of government for the Reservation. Indians make up 93% of the settlements population. Whites make up 5% of the population. There is a sharp contrast in scenery between Agency and the other CDP'S which are located in the reservations mountains, to the secenery of the plains. From the treeless plains, Agency or Rocky Boy if you prefer, and the other settlements located in the nearby Bear Paw Mountains, have many a tree which paints a beautiful scenery.
