Minot Area Community Foundation
Flood Recovery Fund

Flood Recovery Grant Awards

Inaugural Grant Recipients

In it's inaugural grant making, MACF has identified its focus for the Minot Area Recovery Fund to help citizens clean up, restore and rebuild their homes and remain in our community.

When the Recovery Fund was established we were cognizant of the fact that there were going to be short, intermediate and long term needs and our intention is to be able to provide funding throughout all three stages of recovery. As the flood waters have receded, we as the Community Foundation have begun to focus on how we can keep people in our community and surrounding area.

The Recovery Fund's Allocation Committee will meet weekly to assess the greatest community needs and review grant requests.
