BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota's Land Board has awarded $1.2million in state oil-impact grants to counties, townships and other political subdivisions.
Officials say the money awarded Thursday was the final round of the state's two-year budget cycle. The grants included the remaining funds that were set aside for contingency purposes.
The Land Board says it awarded a total of $240 million in impact grants for the current budget cycle to counties experiencing rapid growth from the state's oil boom.
The Land Board is headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.
