BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Land Board has awarded $7.2 million in grants to support health units, airports and fire districts in the state’s oil-producing region.

Officials say the grants are part of a program aimed at helping communities deal with the effects of rapid energy development.

The Land Board announced Thursday that it approved 36 grants for city fire departments and rural fire districts. The board also approved funding for seven communities and in western North Dakota for airport improvements.

The Land Board also awarded grants to three district health units in the region.

The Land Board is headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.
