Washington, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, announced almost $2 million in federal funding to support affordable housing in North Dakota for those lacking a safe place to live.
“Safe, secure, and sustainable housing are basic needs for all of us,” said Heitkamp. “These federal funds will enable local organizations to help more individuals and families facing tough times afford to put roofs over their heads so they can get back on their feet.“
