Housing Assistance Approved For Oil Patch Law Enforcement

BISMARCK – Law enforcement agencies in western North Dakota will receive an additional $1.1 million to support affordable housing, the North Dakota Housing Finance Agency announced Monday.
The agency created the law enforcement pilot program to provide affordable rental housing for officers in energy-impacted areas.
The cities of Crosby and Ray will each receive assistance for one housing unit; Killdeer and Minot will receive assistance for two units; and Williston will receive assistance for six units.
Previously, the agency approved dollars for projects in Belfield, Dickinson, Stanley and Watford City. The program is funded with the state’s share of a national mortgage settlement.
