White Earth gets stimulus grant
The White Earth Reservation received a boost to its job training programs with the awarding of a $3 million federal stimulus grant.
The Pathways Out of Poverty Grants go toward training for "green" jobs. Enrolled tribal members are eligible for the training. White Earth Tribal Chairwoman Erma Vizenor said the tribe was the only American Indian tribe to receive this type of grant.
"The grant is very good news for the White Earth Tribe," Vizenor said.
