THOMPSON — Thompson, North Dakota, submitted one of seven applications from communities in North Dakota accepted for funding from the Main Street Initiative Partners in Planning grant funding.

The MSI PiP Grant program’s purpose is to provide support for nonprofits and local governments that completed a comprehensive plan or economic development or diversification strategic plan.

“With the two options the MSI PiP Grant offers, we are able to provide more tailored funding for the specific needs of each community,” Shawn Kessel, Commerce COO and deputy commissioner, said. “Both options provide seed funding, with the overarching goal of enhancing the community’s overall quality of life, economy, and workforce.”

The city of Thompson was granted $25,000 for phase I of a comprehensive plan. Among the other applicants recommended to receive grant funding were the Hazen Community Development, the Underwood Area Economic Development Corporation, the Carrington Economic Development Corporation, the city of Hettinger, the city of Gwinner and the Bismarck-Mandan Chamber Economic Development Corporation.
