APUC to consider $900K in funding requests from 12 projects
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A program that funds developers of North Dakota farm products is considering grant requests from a dozen projects this quarter.
North Dakota’s Agricultural Products Utilization Commission provides money every three months for research, marketing, farm diversification, ag tourism and technology.
The group meets Wednesday and Thursday in Bismarck to discuss nearly $900,000 worth of requests. They range from about $7,000 for a freeze-dried herb operation in Esmond to nearly $250,000 for an equipment project at Cloverdale Foods in Mandan.
The commission is part of the state Commerce Department.
