MINOT, N.D. (AP) — The city of Minot is getting $18 million from the federal government for an effort to revitalize the city's downtown.

The money through the U.S. Economic Development Administration is part of disaster recovery funding approved by Congress. Minot is continuing to recover from historic Souris River flooding in the summer of 2011.

The city is adding $4.5 million of its own money to the project dubbed Imagine Minot. Other money is coming from a local economic development fund and the federal Housing and Urban Development agency, but most of the funding for the $140 million business and residential renewal project will come from private investments.
