ND awards schools, airports oil-impact grants

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Land Board has awarded $5 million in grants to schools and airports in the state’s oil-producing region.

Officials say the grants are part of a program aimed at helping communities deal with the effects of rapid energy development.

The Land Board this week approved funding about $2 million schools and another $3 million to airports in western North Dakota.

Minot International Airport got the bulk of the money. The airport is received just more than $2 million for the construction of a new passenger terminal and other improvement projects.

The Land Board is headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.


  1. And why did a airport get more than our schools???

  2. Money goes to the best lobbying interests. This case…airlines operating out of Minot.

  3. Great idea but, think about it before you complain. Five million ain’t ant piss.
