BISMARCK -- The longest-running economic development conference in North Dakota is getting a $50,000 grant to help spur new businesses on American Indian reservations.

Representatives of Marketplace for Entrepreneurs received the grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The money will support a one-year pilot program to provide entrepreneurial education at tribal colleges and help entrepreneurs write business plans.

David Gipp, president of the United Tribes Technical College, said assisting businesses on or near reservations is "critically essential" for tribes' success because the state's Indian population is growing.
