Hoeven Announces $1 Million in DOT Tiger Grant Funding for Three Affiliated Tribes

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has awarded $1 million in grant funding to the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation for transportation infrastructure investments on the Fort Berthold Reservation.

“We are working to improve and upgrade infrastructure across our state to ensure that communities have safe and efficient roads, bridges and railways,” said Hoeven. “This DOT grant will help the Three Affiliated Tribes to help improve the transportation network on the Fort Berthold Reservation.” 

The Three Affiliated Tribes will use the grant for the Fort Berthold Comprehensive Regional Transportation Planning project, which is a series of initiatives and studies to help accommodate energy-related growth on the transportation network on the Fort Berthold Reservation.

The DOT grant is awarded with funds appropriated by Congress. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Hoeven has been working to invest in infrastructure and other services to meet the needs of North Dakota’s growing population and commerce.
