     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Republican lawmaker from eastern North Dakota has had a drunken driving charge dropped after a plea deal with prosecutors. KFGO radio reports Rep. Craig Headland, of Montpelier, was arrested in October on Interstate 94 in Stutsman County. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Headland refused a field chemical test and was arrested.
 
     Headland was charged with driving under the influence but was dropped after he pleaded guilty to reckless driving last week. He was ordered to pay a $500 fine and $250 in fees. He also must perform 40 hours of community service.
 
     Headland is a farmer who was first elected to the state House in 2002. He represents District 29, which includes Foster County, rural Stutsman County and parts of Eddy and LaMoure counties.

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson has awarded $74 million to hundreds of public housing authorities across the country to continue helping public housing residents participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program and/or reside in public housing to increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on public assistance and rental subsidies. North Dakota received $215,735 for programs throughout the state.

    Carson says these grants renew HUD's support of 688 public housing authorities through the Department's Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS)) program.  HUD's FSS program helps local public housing authorities hire service coordinators who work directly with residents to connect them with programs and services that already exist in the local community. The FSS program encourages innovative strategies that link housing assistance with a broad spectrum of services that will enable participating families to find jobs, increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for rental and/or welfare assistance, and make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.

    "One of the most important things we can do as public servants is to help HUD-assisted families achieve their dreams," said Secretary Carson. "Working with our local partners, HUD is connecting families to educational opportunities, job training, childcare and other resources that allow them to get higher paying jobs and, ultimately, become self-sufficient.  

    FSS participants sign a five-year contract that requires the head of the household to obtain employment and that no member of the household will receive certain types of public assistance at the end of the five-year term.  These families have an interest-bearing escrow account established for them. The amount credited to the family's escrow account is based on increases in the family's earned income during the term of the FSS contract. If the family successfully completes its FSS contract, the family receives the escrow funds that it can use for any purpose, including debt reduction to improve credit scores, educational expenses, or a down payment on a home.

    The average household income of FSS participants nearly tripled during their time in the program, from $10,000 at the time of entry to more than $27,000 upon program completion.
