BISMARCK – Sept. 1 is the deadline to submit applications for the next round of North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund Program grants, the state Industrial Commission said Monday in a reminder.

The North Dakota Legislature established the Outdoor Heritage Fund in 2013 as a multi-million dollar program to provide grants to state agencies, tribal governments, political subdivisions and nonprofit organizations for projects that will:

  • Provide access to private and public lands for sportsmen, including projects that create fish and wildlife habitat.
  • Improve, maintain and restore water quality, soil conditions, plant diversity and animal systems, and support other practices of stewardship to enhance farming and ranching.
  • Develop and enhance the conservation and restoration of wildlife and fish habitat on private and public lands.
  • Conserve natural areas and create other areas for recreation through the establishment and development of parks and recreation areas.
The flicker is a woodpecker, but it has its own habits, some of them quite different than those of its woodpecker relatives.

The application, along with additional information, is available at nd.gov/ndic/outdoor-infopage.htm or by contacting Reice Haase at (701) 328-3786 or Karlene Fine at (701) 328-3722.

The North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund Program is overseen by the North Dakota Industrial Commission, consisting of Gov. Doug Burgum, Attorney General Drew Wrigley and Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring.
