Communities with Opportunities

North Dakota's small communities have BIG opportunities!

North Dakota has always been a place for those seeking more. Now and always, this state will welcome those who are ready to embrace the opportunities rural North Dakota communities have to offer and to strengthen this place we call home.



**Strengthen ND believes in rural communities.  Through a series of storytellers, we hope to share the stories of North Dakota’s newcomers and the opportunities for economic success and belonging they found in rural communities.  If you want to be a part of welcoming new North Dakotans into your rural community, sign up to attend our Rural Network Retreat on September 10th or connect with Megan Laudenschlager (Executive Director) at
