NEW TOWN, N.D. — Two Indian tribes in North Dakota have received more than $48,000 each for economic development efforts.
The state’s congressional delegation says the funds from the U.S. Economic Development Administration have been awarded to the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Sioux Tribe and the Three Affiliated Tribes.
U.S. John Hoeven says the grants will help the tribes “develop and diversify” their economies.
The grants are meant to be used to implement comprehensive economic development plans, bringing together the public and private sectors.
The grants are expected to lead to the creation of jobs in several North Dakota counties, as well as Codington, Day, Grant, Marshall and Roberts counties in South Dakota.
