The Highly Rural Transportation Grant (HRTG) is a Federal Grant under the Federal VA which was awarded to the North Dakota Department of Veterans affairs in 2015 and renewed in 2016. This grant appropriates funds to the NDDVA to provide transportation to medical appointments for veterans of Highly Rural Counties. The NDDVA in working with the North Dakota Department of Transportation has contracted with the existing ND Transit providers. These transit contractors will provide transportation for veterans to medical appointments at no charge to the veteran (they will bill the NDDVA'). The medical appointments can be at a VA health care facility or any non-VA health care facility. No requirement that the Federal VA refer veteran to appointments. Any medical Appointment regardless of VA or non-VA relationship is eligible.

The terms of the HRTG is that only veterans in Highly Rural areas are eligible. In North Dakota 36 of it's 53 counties are eligible. The eligible counties are: Adams, Benson, Billings, Bottineau, Bowman, Burke, Cavalier, Dickey, Divide, Dunn, Eddy, Emmons, Foster, Golden Valley, Gant, Griggs, Hettinger, Kidder, LaMoure, Logan, McHenry, McIntosh, McKenzie, McLean, Mountrail, Nelson, Oliver, Pierce, Renville, Sargent, Sheridan, Sioux, Slope, Standing Rock (Ft. Yates), Steele, Three Affiliated Tribes (Ft. Berthold)Towner, and Wells. Contact your county provider at NDDOT Transit Services or the CVSO page.

The HRTG also allowed for NDDVA to provide transportation vans along with operational funding to Counties and Veteran Service Organizations to provide transportation for our Veterans. These vans can be used to provide transportation to medical appointments also. The counties which have received vans are: Bottineau, Cavalier, Dickey, Dunn, Golden Valley, Griggs, McKenzie, Sheridan and Steele. Tribes with these vans are: Standing Rock (Ft. Yates), and Three Affiliated Tribes (Ft. Berthold). Contact information for these van services are on each counties CVSO page.
