Small town North Dakota is not being left behind in the robust growth sweeping cities and boom regions in the state.
Take a look at Towner County and Cando, the county seat. Through economic development support and mechanisms offered by electric and telecommunications cooperatives, that county and community are seeing businesses start, re-start and grow.

RDFC resources are made available locally primarily through the Towner County Economic Development Fund, which operates out of Northern Plains Electric Cooperative office in Cando.Full Story
