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 incomes that fall within the amounts below may be eligible to have 100% of their special assessments paid for by the grant:
1 person $24,750 or less
2 people $28,250 or less
3 people $31,800 or less
4 people $35,300 or less
5 people $38,150 or less
6 people $40,950 or less
If after paying the special assessments of residents who qualify in the above category, Crystal residents who are above those limits but fall within the following limits may be eligible for partial payment of their special assessments.
1 person $24,751 – $39,550
2 people $28,251 – $45,200
3 people $31,801 – $50,850
4 people $35,301 – $56,500
5 people $38,151 – $61,050
6 people $40,951 – $65,550
