BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Dakotas are among 41 states that will share in $272 million this year to support local schools, roads and forests.

The money comes from the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act administered by the U.S. Forest Service.

The payments from the Forest Service may be used to support public schools and roads and to help maintain and improve the health of forests. Money also may be used to develop community wildfire protection plans and for emergency services reimbursements on national forests.
