Trying to Fill CDBG Program

Posted: Updated:

While some are looking to sell rebuilt properties in the valley -- still others are hoping to rebuild.

This past week, a homecoming was celebrated in Minot at the home of Marjorie Johnson.

She was able to qualify for a Community Development Block Grant funded program to get her home rebuilt...and others may be able to do the same.

Robert Batherson is with CDM Smith, the company contracted by the city to oversee the program.

He says over 100 homes are being rebuilt using these funds now -- but more money is there...and he wants more people to sign up for the grants to get their homes rebuilt.

There are income guidelines...but still he encourages people to investigate and see if they would qualify.

(Robert Batherson - CDM Smith) "Right now the program is limited to low to moderate income folks. You know a lot of retirees and even some military folks may fall underneath that guideline so we are encouraging everyone to not necessarily make that call themselves but to come in and see us and we will help you get qualified."

The office for the program is located in the Arrowhead Shopping Center.

More funding has been approved in Washington recently that will expand the program, and perhaps move the income level higher so that others can qualify.
