Hoeven Discusses Minot Flood Protection

Posted: Updated:

Today, Sen. Hoeven was in Minot to meet with the newly elected Mayor Chuck Barney along with city, county and community leaders.

The focus of today’s meeting was not only on recovering from the flood, but also permanent flood protection for the whole region. Sen. Hoeven says they want to tap into a variety of funding sources like CDBG, which are federal dollars, amongst other things.

“We want to partner them with state dollars and local dollars to get as many projects going as we can. There’s a new program coming out now through HUD, which will bring about a billion dollars nationwide in additional CDBG monies,” says Hoeven.

Sen. Hoeven wants the region to apply for the new program, which would require development of a competitive project to compete nationally. Challenges like home buyouts and recovery issues could be addressed.
