Farm Credit Services of North Dakota has awarded the North Central Juvenile Drug Court $3,000 as a recipient of the Pat-NOW Community Fund (PNCF). The grant funds will help purchase incentives for Minot Juvenile Drug Court participants.

Youth referred to the Juvenile Drug Court (JDC) are diagnosed as having severe addictions to drugs and/or alcohol. They have an opportunity to earn points for incentives by completing court, school treatment and community service projects. It also benefits the local community through their contribution and reduces criminal activity.

“We are proud to award these funds to help them provide incentives for those successfully working through the program,” said Teresa Kjellberg, director of Marketing with Farm Credit Services of North Dakota. “Farm Credit believes strongly in giving back to the community, and this project will help provide the JDC with additional funds to support their program and continue to help the participants become sober law-abiding citizens in the community.”

Farm Credit Services of North Dakota established the Pat-NOW Community Fund to assist in the implementation and development of projects and programs in local communities and rural areas in western North Dakota.

The Pat-NOW Community Fund is currently accepting applications for future funding requests. Interested parties can apply at www.farmcreditnd.com.
