Bismarck, ND – A North Dakota town will benefit from the USDA’s $17.4 million investment into rural communities.
The USDA announced it is investing the money into 41 different projects that will provide essential services for rural communities in 22 states.
In North Dakota, the City of Marmarth will get a $100,000 grant and a $128,000 loan to restore its levee. The USDA says these repairs are necessary after the 2011 flood damaged it. The levee protects the town from floodwaters of the Little Missouri River.
