BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Energy Impact office says public school districts in oil- and gas-producing counties can apply for infrastructure grants.

The agency says it will take grant applications through July 16 from schools needing one-time funding to address direct impacts from oil and gas development.

Examples of projects include developing affordable teacher housing, temporary portable classrooms to aid in dealing with expanding enrollment, technology needs and security improvements.

A 20 percent local match of the total project cost is required.
