WILLISTON, ND – To help meet the challenge of creating affordable housing in Western North Dakota, American State Bank & Trust Company of Williston has contributed $500,000 to the North Dakota Housing Incentive Fund. ASB&T has previously contributed to this fund and this year’s contribution brings ASB&T’s running total to $875,000 since 2011.
The $500,000 contribution will be directed to affordable housing projects. ASB&T President/CEO Dave Hanson said, “We consider it our privilege to be able to take part in the creation of affordable housing projects in and around our community.”
ASB&T Board Member Tammy Davidson Sogard presented the check to ND Housing Finance Agency Executive Director Jolene Kline. She represents the Davidson Family’s 109 years of ownership of ASB&T and support of Western North Dakota communities.
Hanson said, “ASB&T is Williston’s only locally owned bank and we take our commitment to the communities we serve very seriously. Being able to play a part in bringing additional affordable housing to the area is part of being a responsible business.”
