BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A federal grant is aimed at strengthening businesses and creating jobs in Indian Country in North Dakota.

The state's congressional delegation says the U.S. Department of Agriculture is giving a $175,000 grant to the Coalition of Indian Housing Authorities of North Dakota.

The funds from USDA's Rural Business Enterprise Grant program will be used to establish a revolving loan fund for small and emerging businesses that benefit Native Americans living on or near reservations in North Dakota.

The money is part of $2.7 million awarded in 19 states.
