— Federal grants totaling $1.5 million are being awarded to a rural elderly care program and the University of North Dakota's School of Nursing.

U.S. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp and John Hoeven announced the grants on Tuesday.

Bismarck-based Northland Healthcare Alliance will receive about $1.2 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for a rural elderly care program.

UND will get $350,000 in federal funds from the Health and Human Services' Nursing Workforce Diversity program. The money will provide stipends and scholarships to people from disadvantaged backgrounds and groups that are underrepresented among registered nurses.
