HOUSING INSECURITY LISTENING SESSION

Stable housing is more important than ever before as we add Covid-19, community spread and shelter-in-place to the equation.  The City of Grand Forks and local partners will hold a listening session to gather information from the non-profit community on the housing challenges they are seeing and hear ideas for solutions and support.  We will share this information with our state and federal partners, and it will help guide policies and programs to address the COVID-19 crisis.  With your help, we’ll shape our local approach to recovery.
