With monthly rents now coming due in the FEMA temporary housing units, more people are hurrying to transition out of the trailers.
The latest numbers show 544 units are now occupied, down from 566 just over a week ago.
Many of the individuals and families still in T.H.U.'s rented an apartment or house, or lived in a modular home in the flood valley and now can't find affordable housing.
Tom Carroll is the FEMA Recovery Division Director for Region eight based in Denver, Colorado.
Carroll says through conversations with families still in FEMA units, only about half of them have a long term plan in place.
(Tom Carroll, FEMA Region 8 Recovery Division Director - Denver) " That leaves a number in the 270 range that we're looking at right now and working cooperatively with the city and with the Minot housing authority for housing solutions for those individuals."
The deadline for individuals to live in FEMA temporary housing expires June 24th.
Currently people living in the TGU's are being charged rent.
