The North Dakota Board of University and School Lands (Land Board) awarded a $261,000 grant today to a community-based provider of services for citizens with developmental disabilities. The grant was authorized by House Bill 1015 by the 2017 Legislature. Tri-City Cares, which operates three intermediate care facilities in New Town, Stanley, and Tioga, will receive the grant through the Energy Infrastructure and Impact Office.
The grant is contingent on the sales agreement and continued operations by another firm.
The Board of University and School Lands recently awarded over $1.5 million of grants to fifteen licensed basic care and skilled nursing homes in oil producing counties, and two home health and hospice organizations in Williston and Dickinson. The grants were awarded to help address the negative impacts based on affordable housing and childcare, high staff turnover or reliance on contract staffing, and may have operated at a loss due to the impacts of oil and gas development and competition for staff and housing.
A grant is available that provides one-time funding for treatment and support services for victims of human trafficking. Funds will be awarded through a competitive process to organizations that demonstrate involvement in providing prevention and treatment services related to human trafficking victims, in coordination with state and local governments. Applications will be accepted by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), Attn: Savannah Schmidt, through postal operations only, postmarked no later than July 13, 2017. Applications should be bound, but not stapled, and can be downloaded from the BCI website at: https://attorneygeneral.nd.gov/criminal-justice-resources/grants/human-trafficking-victim-treatment-and-support-services-funding
