BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The U.S. Department of the Interior is giving about $400,000 to North Dakota for conservation and outdoor recreation projects.
The money comes from the department's Land and Water Conservation Fund. The fund collects money from federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf.
U.S. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp and John Hoeven both separately announced the funding Tuesday.
The money will be given to North Dakota. It's up to the state to decide how to disperse the funding.
