Habitat Unlimited of Bismarck will work with wildlife chapters, many of which rely solely on volunteers, to develop habitat projects and offer professional grant-writing services, the Petroleum Council said in a news release Wednesday.

Council President Ron Ness noted the Outdoor Heritage Fund is funded by revenues from oil and gas taxes and “is a great resource for improving habitats and access to the outdoors now and for future generations.”

North Dakota grassroots groups and chapters that lack local full-time paid staff or resources will be given priority, the release said. Interested groups may contact Habitat Unlimited President Dave Nehring at dnehring@bek tel.com for more information.

Created by the 2013 Legislature, the Outdoor Heritage Fund is capped at $30 million for the 2013-15 biennium. The application deadline for the next grant period is Aug. 1.
