Outdoor Heritage Fund applications total $9.5 million; advisory board to consider them Monday


BISMARCK, North Dakota — The advisory board for a fund aimed at conservation and recreation projects in North Dakota is set to consider the first grant requests of the current two-year budget cycle.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1OuUHBp ) that the 20 applications to the North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund total $9.5 million. The board meets Monday in Bismarck.

The fund gets a percentage of oil and gas production taxes. The goal is to restore land affected by energy production and to develop such things as fish and wildlife habitat and outdoor recreation areas.

The advisory board will make funding recommendations to the state Industrial Commission, which meets on Dec. 16.
