Hundreds of people now living in FEMA trailers around Minot have no housing options as of the end of the year.
That's when FEMA's 18-month timeline ends for providing temporary housing.
And even though FEMA officials have indicated there could be an extension, city officials are pushing to get more financial help for people with no housing choices.
A survey was distributed last week to all 12-hundred-or-so FEMA trailers now inhabited in the Minot area.
And city finance director Cindy Hemphill is urging residents to fill out the survey right away.
She says the information will be used in an attempt to help people find a way to get new housing.
(Cindy Hemphill, Minot Finance Director) "What we really want to be able to do is compile the data and be able to present statistics to our state legislators and federal partners that show that, yes, the individuals in Minot still need assistance and still need help and that we're looking for some financial assistance to help these individuals."
To return your survey, you can simply attach it to the front door of your FEMA trailer, or drop it off at city hall or the city's disaster center at Arrowhead Shopping Center.
The surveys will be collected tomorrow and Thursday.
