Hoeven: $350,000 Grant Awarded to Abused Adult Resource Center in Bismarck

BISMARCK, N.D. – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has awarded a $352,416 grant to the Abused Adult Resource Center (AARC) in Bismarck to fund their transitional housing program. The AARC is a nonprofit, nongovernmental agency serving victims of physical assault and emotional abuse in south-central North Dakota.

“Law enforcement works hard to prevent abuse and assault, but when such crimes do occur, organizations like AARC provide the support and care that victims need,” Hoeven said.

In addition to the AARC grant, Hoeven announced last week the awarding of grants to local and state entities to combat sexual and domestic abuse. Several grants totaling $3 million were awarded to help rural and tribal officials in the Bakken region of North Dakota and Montana prosecute violent crimes against women and provide services to victims of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking. The DOJ also...

Hoeven: CP Railway Needs to Add Resources, Too

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today said the Canadian Pacific Railway Company (CP) needs to add resources to meet the growing demand for shipping in North Dakota, and also needs to change its method of reserving cars and tracking orders in a way that is fair and transparent to shippers.

“We have pushed BNSF to add resources, which they are doing, and we are pushing CP to make the same kind of commitment to meeting the needs of our agriculture shippers,” Hoeven said. “Our business needs are growing, so Canadian Pacific needs to be clear about how many more railcars, locomotives and personnel they plan to devote to our market.”

Hoeven and his staff have had ongoing discussions with Canadian Pacific officials this year to push for better service and more transparency in the system they use to report backlogs. He will make the same point Thursday at the Surface Transportation Board (STB) hearing in Fargo.

Hoeven: North Dakota Selected to Host National Agricultural Genotyping Center at NDSU

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (USDA–ARS) Biosciences Research Laboratory on the campus of North Dakota State University (NDSU) has been selected as the site for the newly formed National Agricultural Genotyping Center (NAGC). Activities at the Center will begin in October.

“The National Corn Growers’ decision reflects the growing respect and attention Fargo and the Red River Valley are getting nationally for the work they’re doing with new and innovative technologies,” Hoeven said. “The collaboration between the USDA-ARS and the National Agricultural Genotyping Center comes as good news for the North Dakota Corn Growers, NDSU, Fargo and our entire state.”

Last month, the North Dakota Corn Growers Association bid to host the new facility, and Hoeven spearheaded an effort to support their bid, writing a letter of support to Dr...

Hoeven Announces $270K in Formula Funds to Support Services for Victims of Sexual Assault

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has awarded $270,447 in funding to the North Dakota Department of Health to support core services, direct intervention and related assistance for victims of sexual assault. The funds are made available through the Sexual Assault Services Formula Grant Program (SASP), which assists states in supporting rape crisis centers and other nonprofit organizations.

“We are working hard to provide the assistance our local officials need to not only prevent crime in our state, but also to help them alleviate the impacts of crime,” said Hoeven. “To that end, these funds will help provide the support and care victims of sexual assault most need in their time of crisis.”

Earlier this week, Hoeven announced $3 million in grants to help rural and tribal officials prosecute crimes of violence against women and provide services to victims of sexual assault, domestic ...
