FEMA Considers Sales of Minot ‘Flood Housing’

August 21, 2012

Some of Minot, N.D.’s temporary flood housing units could end up being donated or sold.

North Dakota U.S. Sen. John Hoeven says the Federal Emergency Management Agency is drafting a policy to allow the trailers to be donated to the city or a nonprofit agency. They could also be sold to low-income residents.

None of the trailers would be sold until FEMA’s housing duties are finished. The Minot Daily News reports that may happen at year’s end, or in June 2013.

About 1,000 FEMA trailers are still being used. Most people who are living in trailers owned homes that were flooded during last year’s Souris River flooding.

The disaster affected cities and property along the length of the Souris River, and damaged more than 4,000 homes in Minot alone.
