BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An American Indian tribe in North Dakota is getting federal money to help public housing residents find jobs and educational opportunities.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says it awarded nearly $200,000 in grants to the Spirit Lake tribe’s housing corporation.

The agency says the funds help tribes hire or retain “service coordinators” who work with residents to assess their needs and connect them with education, job training and placement programs to promote self-sufficiency.
