BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck is getting a $255,000 federal grant to help minority businesses in North Dakota and around the country.

Members of the state’s congressional delegation say the money is through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency.

The college run by North Dakota tribes will use the money to deliver consulting and other services to eligible minority businesses to boost job creation and retention.
