Hoeven Announces More Than $2.8 Million To Secure Slopes Near University Of Mary

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded a $2,844,888 grant to the State of North Dakota. The funds, awarded through FEMA’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation Competitive (PDMC) Grant Program, will cover 75 percent of the nearly $3.8 million cost of a bank stabilization project at the University of Mary.

“By supporting efforts to shore up infrastructure, FEMA can help prevent dangerous and costly disasters,” Hoeven said. “Today’s funding will help stabilize slopes near the University of Mary’s North Campus Residence Hall so that they can continue to provide a strong foundation for many years to come.”
