Land Board awards flood-recovery grantsBISMARCK — North Dakota is giving more than $25 million in grants to help cities and counties cover the costs of repairing flood-damaged infrastructure.
The state Land Board voted unanimously Thursday to award the $25.6 million in grants.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple, who is chairman of the five-member state Land Board, says the grants are an important part of helping communities and rural areas recover from last year's major flood.
Nearly $19 million will go to flood-recovery projects in Ward County. Burleigh County gets $2.7 million, while Morton County will get $1.1 million. Ramsey, Renville, McHenry, Richland, Barnes and Benson counties will each receive less than $1 million.
