New Rebuilding Fund Plan Progressing

New Rebuilding Fund Plan Progressing

Posted: Updated:

A new plan is progressing to offer flood victims up to ten thousand dollars in federal funds for their rebuilding effort.

The plan uses millions of Community Development Block Grant money to help homeowners in the city of Minot who are not in the footprint of the proposed flood control project.

Recipients will have to prove they rebuilt their flooded homes within a year of the flood.

And they'll have to provide receipts to show their expenses exceed any assistance they received, including grants and loans.

Nearly 900 people have applied for the funds - although there are many that don't qualify because they live outside city limits.

(Cindy Hemphill, Minot City FInance Director) "It's a little time consuming to go through...first thing is we determined whether they were eligible based on the type of structure, whether it is in city limits, if it's in the footprint, and then we'll have to contact each individual family or individual and determine duplication of benefits and all those types of things."

Hemphill says city staff members will be contacting applicants to begin the screening process as soon as possible.

Applications for the CDBG grants are being taken through the end of December.
