FEMA housing extended in Ward County
MINOT, N.D. — The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it has extended temporary housing for people displaced by the 2011 Souris River through September.
FEMA says the temporary housing sales program will continue through Sept. 24. The agency also is working with the Minot Housing Authority on a transfer of units housing current residents that would qualify for MHA housing programs.
Currently there are approximately 290 housing units in use in Ward County. A total of more than 2,000 units have been occupied at one time or another.
FEMA Federal Disaster Recovery Coordinator Dan Alexander says the extension will help residents have time to make informed decisions about their future.
