(Bismarck, ND) — Financial assistance is available for some homeowners affected by lengthy power outages during North Dakota’s most recent blizzard. The April 22nd and 23rd storm knocked out power in much of the northwest part of the state. Households in Burke, Divide, McKenzie, Mountrail, and Williams counties that were without power for five or more days because of the storm and who earn less than the median income in their county can apply for financial help. The help is available through the North Department of Human Services’ new NW N.D. Emergency Housing Stability program. Eligible households can receive up to 100-dollars a day per without power through the short-term program.
