(Bismarck, ND) -- A North Dakota rental assistance program is providing millions in aid in Cass County.

ND Rent Help has provided more than $27-million dollars in assistance in the county since 2021.

The state began offering rental assistance in May 2020, but received a big boost in 2021 with the infusion of funds from the federal Treasury Department.

The program can provide up to 12 months of rent and utility assistance for qualified households. However, due to a high volume of applications being submitted, it can take upwards of eight weeks to get a reponse on your claim.
