BISMARCK — WPX Energy is making a $100,000 contribution to help build affordable housing on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple and representatives from WPX Energy announced the contribution to the North Dakota Housing Incentive Fund on Tuesday.
WPX Energy’s contribution was designated for use on the Fort Berthold Reservation, with half of the contribution targeted specifically for The Highlands of Parshall, a large development that will provide rental units near a school and playground for lower-income households.
Housing Incentive Fund contributions can be targeted to a specific project or designated for general use in a community or region.
Individuals, businesses and financial institutions that give to the fund receive a dollar-for-dollar state income tax credit.
