BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Cities across North Dakota are set to get the first distribution of new state infrastructure funding next month.

The 2019 Legislature passed “Operation Prairie Dog,” which created several state funds filled every two years with up to $250 million of oil tax revenue.

The money is to be distributed throughout North Dakota for city, county, township and airport infrastructure projects.

The Municipal Infrastructure Fund in December will distribute nearly $29.9 million to 41 cities with populations of 1,000 people or more in non-oil-producing counties.

Payments are population-based and range from $125,000 to $2.5 million per city.
