The City of Crystal is currently in the process of preparing for a Citywide Street Improvement Project. The city has applied for North Dakota Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to help pay for a portion of this project.
The cost of the project will be divided among the property owners in the form of special assessments. However, homeowners whose incomes fall within CDBG program guidelines for Pembina County can apply to have their special assessments paid for by the grant. The Red River Regional Council (RRRC) will be administering the grant for the city.
Household income qualifications are:
1 person $24,750 or less
2 people $28,250 or less
3 people $31,800 or less
4 people $35,300 or less
Income guidelines include anyone living in the home that is age 18 and older.
In order to determine who may qualify for payment of specials, RRRC staff will be in Crystal to meet with individual residents on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Crystal Apartments located at 334 3rdStreet in Crystal. Letters have been sent to single family homeowners.
Please bring proof of your 2014 income along with the application. Applications can be obtained from Crystal City Auditor Alva Brown or from the RRRC office by calling 701-352-3550. Proof of income and the application are required for participation in this program.
Proof of income includes:
- Your 2014 income tax statement, if applicable
- Social Security benefits statement, if applicable
- If employed, pay stubs for the past two months
- Documentation of any other form of income as noted on the back of the application
If you are unable to attend, please mail or drop off your application and proof of income as soon as possible to the RRRC office, 516 Cooper Avenue, Suite 101, Grafton, ND 58237, by Monday, June 1, 2015. Any original income documents will be copied and sent back to you.
