BISMARCK — The North Dakota Industrial Commission has approved North Dakota Housing Finance Agency’s (NDHFA) planned distribution of $200,000 through its Helping Housing Across North Dakota (Helping HAND) program.

In the Jamestown region, the grant distribution included Community Action Region VI, Jamestown, which received $11,278.

NDHFA provides the Helping HAND grants to targeted community groups with existing single-family housing rehabilitation programs. The funds are used to help households with an income of 80% or less than the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s median for the county in which a home is located. Matching funds of at least 25% percent of a rehab project’s total cost are required to access the grant dollars.

Roof replacement is the most common rehab project, said Dave Flohr, NDHFA executive director.

NDHFA’s Helping HAND program is funded with agency earnings. The grants are distributed
to Community Action agencies by poverty level. Funds provided to tribal housing authorities and non-profits are established set-asides. Households in need of rehab assistance can contact Community Action Region VI for more information.
