Federal Funds Help Minot Social Service Agency

Posted: Updated:

Thanks to a Department of Housing and Urban Development grant, more than $45,000 will help the Community Action Partnership of Minot continue its goal of empowering families and individuals to increase their self-sufficiency and improve their overall quality of life.

“Right now rents are sky high in Minot, and we know there is a lot of work going on trying to get more affordable housing, but that's still a little ways down the road. When folks are paying 600, 700, 800, even up to a thousand dollars a month in rent, what we're finding is that about 70 to 80% of their money that they're earning goes towards rent,” said Willy Soderholm, Executive Director of Community Action in Minot.

The $45,000 is the most money that Community Action has received through a HUD grant. The money will go towards case management for their housing programs.
