There is also a pool of federal money waiting to be tapped for flood victims who meet more strict guidelines than the state program.
Part of the Community Development Block Grant program in Minot offers up to 60-thousand dollars in grant money to the elderly, disabled, and people with low to moderate income.
But the money is only for people currently living in a FEMA trailer who are rebuilding or repairing a flooded home.
Minot Finance Director Cindy Hemphill says the process is moving along so that, she hopes, some who qualify will receive their funds this winter.
Cindy Hemphill, Minot Finance Director) "One of the big things we're working on so that when we do know what folks are eligible is that we have drafted a "request for proposals" so that we'll be able to get that out on the street as quickly as possible and we can start awarding contracts because if it's a rehabilitation hopefully we can do some work in the wintertime, and if it's a reconstruction we'll have to wait until spring."
If you think you might meet the income guidelines, stop at the office located in Arrowhead Shopping Center in Minot.
