Minot residents whose homes were damaged by the 2011 Souris River flooding or are being bought out for flood protection might be eligible to up to $60,000 for help purchasing another home....

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot residents whose homes were damaged by the 2011 Souris River flooding or are being bought out for flood protection might be eligible to up to $60,000 for help purchasing another home.

    The flood damaged or destroyed more than 4,000 buildings in Minot, displacing more than 11,000 people and causing about $700 million in damage.

    The Minot Daily News reports that a new Resilient Homebuyer program is available to any Minot residents whose homes are being acquired for flood control or flood mitigation. It's also offered to interested buyers whose homes or apartments were significantly damaged in 2011. The amount of incentive offered to applicants will be decided by the North Dakota Housing Finance Agency or its participating lenders. All home purchases must be located within the city's limits.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum's trip to the Super Bowl earlier this month as a guest of a Minneapolis utility also included free invitations to private parties, meals and other events. The Associated Press discovered the invitations through an open records request.

    A spokesman says the GOP governor has reimbursed Xcel Energy for all costs related the weekend trip. The utility serves more than 90,000 customers in North Dakota. Burgum said earlier that he reimbursed Xcel $37,000 for tickets the company provided for him and his wife to "eliminate even the perception of any conflict." He did not disclose the other events. A spokesman says Burgum repaid the utility $2,500 to cover meals and other costs at the same time he repaid the company for the Super Bowl tickets.

     FORT YATES, N.D. (AP) - The former director of an elder abuse prevention program on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation is accused of embezzling more than $100,000. Federal prosecutors in North Dakota have charged Kenneth Red Bear with embezzlement and theft from an Indian tribal organization and theft in Indian Country.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandi Russell tells KFGO radio that the money was stolen from the tribe's federally funded Elderly Protection Team, which is responsible for investigating reports of elder abuse. Russell says the thefts allegedly occurred between June, 2009 and February, 2017. She says additional charges are possible. Court documents do not list an attorney for Red Bear.

    The Standing Rock Reservation straddles the North Dakota and South Dakota border.

     PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The Trump administration is once again calling for the complete elimination of low-income heating assistance. And once again, program supporters are vowing to fight it. The administration is using the same arguments from a year ago when it tried to abolish the program, saying it's rife with fraud and that no one would be left freezing if the program goes away. Those claims were widely discredited a year ago. The National Energy Assistance Directors' Association called President Donald Trump's arguments "very misleading and wrong." Trump ultimately funded the program this winter after his original proposal a year ago encountered resistance from Congress.
