Programs by Region

Each of the seven Community Action Agencies across North Dakota offer a wide variety of programs to serve those in need including, but not limited to: Budgeting and Money Management, Child Care, Commodities, Emergency Assistance, Energy Assistance,  Food Pantry, Head Start, Housing, Self-Sufficiency, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), and Weatherization. All programs serve low- and moderate-income individuals and families, senior citizens, and others in crisis situations.

Each agency offers unique programming based on the needs in their community; please inquire with the Community Action Agency in your area to see what programs are offered. Eligibility for most programs is based on either federal or state income guidelines. These guidelines vary from program to program and intake forms are used to determine client eligibility.

Rental and mortgage assistance may be available for those who are up to 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.  Verification of sources of income and expenses is required to determine eligibility.  Any potential applicant must call their local Community Action Agency and inquire. Please note, although our offices are currently closed physically closed to the public, each agency is able to work with applicants via phone and e-communications. Call your local agency today if you need assistance!
