North Dakota: Legendary. Follow the trail of legends
 
Breaking News:
Based on the results of the revised revenue forecast released on February 1, 2016, it is predicted the oil and gas impact grant fund will receive $28.6 million of the $140 million appropriated during the 2015 Legislative Session.  This significant reduction is a result of the drop in the price of oil and the reduced collections of Gross Production Tax (GPT) which is the source of funding for the impact grant program.
 
Efforts are underway to develop plans to address this shortfall. Plans may include:
-Suspending any additional grants
-Reducing previously approved awards
-or suspension of awards
 
All possibilities will be given consideration: 
Calls are being made to those holding open grants to communicate these new funding information and research options.  Grant projects that were not started as of February 1, 2016 are considered in a pending status until more knowledge is gained regarding funding availability for the program.  Future decisions will be communicated on this website, via phone, mail and e-mail to stakeholders as they are finalized.
