(Bismarck, ND) -- A grant-funded program is helping older adults in rural North Dakota communities get the resources they need.

The Aging in the Community program helps address food security, medical needs, and other issues for older, rural adults.

Officials say connecting them with resources is especially important in the winter.

The program also helps older adults to make contact with their neighbors and to find ways to socialize.
