On Tuesday, January 26th, Farm Credit organizations in western North Dakota announced more than $430,000 in grants to local communities through the Rural Community Grant Fund.

The women’s shelter in Beulah will be able to care for more people in crisis situations. And firefighters in Tolley, Bowbells, and Portal will have access to the equipment they need to keep their communities safe.

I am proud of the support these communities have given us this year and I’m pleased to be able to give back with the intentions of helping them make a difference,” says Claude Sem, CEO, Farm Credit Services of North Dakota.

The latest grants include:
• $50,000 to ABLE Inc. for an elevator in a group home serving individuals with developmental disabilities in Dickinson.
