Rural Community Grant Fund

​​AgriBank is pleased to partner with Farm Credit Services of Mandan and Farm Credit Services of North Dakota to provide the Rural Community Grant Fund. Disbursements through this fund are designated for projects and programs in rural communities in western North Dakota.

Grants up to $50,000 will be available within the Rural Community Grant Fund to facilitate infrastructure improvement and/or development initiatives encompassing housing projects, health, safety and environmental programs, medical facilities, educational programs and more. The Rural Community Grant Fund will be funded annually by the income earned by AgriBank​, on its mineral interests within western North Dakota, as designated by its Board of Directors. AgriBank​ acquired its mineral interests in western North Dakota as a result of loan activity following the Great Depression.
