Hoeven Announces $4.5 Million in USDA Rural Telecom Loans to Establish, Expand Broadband Service

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has awarded Telecommunications Infrastructure loans totaling more than $4.5 million to North Dakota rural telecommunications providers to establish and expand broadband service to rural areas of Stutsman, Morton and Oliver counties.

Earlier this year, Hoeven wrote to USDA Broadband Division Director Kenneth Kuchno in support of BEK’s and Daktel’s applications for the loans.

“North Dakota has enjoyed significant economic growth in recent years thanks to our pro-business legal, tax, and regulatory environment,” Hoeven wrote. “Part of that success comes from making the right kind of investments in our infrastructure that helps sustain this growth over the long-term. As you well understand, Internet access is a vital tool for improving our citizens’ quality of life by giving them better access to education, health care, and commerce se...

Hoeven Working to Expand Grand Forks Global Hawk Mission, Arctic Creates Opportunities for Base

GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven and members of the Grand Forks Base Realignment Impact Committee (BRIC) Wednesday met with top officials at Northern Command (NORTHCOM) headquarters at Peterson Air Force base in Colorado to discuss how the UAS mission at Grand Forks Air Force Base can play a role in NORTHCOM’s Arctic operations. NORTHCOM is the joint command responsible for all U.S. military missions in and around North America, including the Arctic region.

“This is yet another reason we’ve worked so hard to make the region a national hub for research, development, testing, operations and the commercialization of unmanned aerial technologies,” Hoeven said “The Arctic region is emerging as an important focus for the U.S. military. That means the Northern Command will need the right tools to secure America’s interests and national security in the region, including reconnaissance aircraft like the Global Hawks based at Grand Fork...

Hoeven: HHS Provides $23 Million in Heating Assistance for North Dakotans

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded more than $23 million in Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) funding to help low-income North Dakotans heat their homes. The funding includes almost $5.6 million for North Dakota’s tribes.

“With cold weather approaching, we need to ensure that North Dakotans have the resources necessary to keep their homes safe and warm,” said Hoeven. “These LIHEAP dollars will help North Dakotans in need, including those on our reservations, to pay their energy bills during the upcoming winter.”

Last winter, Hoeven worked with state and tribal leaders and HHS officials to secure additional LIHEAP funding to help North Dak...

Hoeven Working to Build a True All-of-the-Above National Energy Plan That Puts States First

BISMARCK, N.D. – At the eighth annual Great Plains & EmPower ND Energy Conference today, Senator John Hoeven drove home the importance of building a true states-first, all-of-the-above national energy policy like the one he led in North Dakota, and he outlined a comprehensive range of energy legislation he has authored to help the country do the same. Together, the United States and its closest friend and ally Canada can achieve true energy independence and wean ourselves from reliance on Middle Eastern oil, but we need to empower our domestic energy industry, Hoeven said.

“North Dakota stands as an example of what we can accomplish when we take a comprehensive approach to energy development and build a healthy business climate, like we did with EmPower ND,” Hoeven said. “Those efforts to create a pro-business legal, tax and regulatory environment have produced tremendous benefits, raising our standard of living, keeping unemployment low and gener...
