Vision West ND
The ND Association of Oil and Gas Producing Counties partnered with the Southwest REAP Zone and the REAP Investment Fund on the winning submission for the HUD Planning Grant ($1.5 Million) which was readily matched with funds from the North Dakota Energy Infrastructure and Impact Fund ($300,000). Additionally, locally matched in-kind dollars ($600,000) were dedicated towards the project. The combined federal, state, and local dollars will be used to create a grass-roots effort to address the issues and create a road map for the future. Funding through HUD ended January 2015 and is now funded by North Dakota Association of Oil and Gas Producing Counties.
A six-initiative approach to address emerging growth challenges was developed by the Region.
- Economic Development/Diversification Strategic Plan
- Infrastructure Needs Planning
- Planning and Zoning Recommendations
