Environmental Assessment for Minot Temporary Housing Sites, Minot, Ward County, North Dakota (July 2011)
The purpose of this project is to assist residents displaced by the Souris River Basin floods by providing temporary housing. The need for temporary housing exists because there is no available temporary housing in the locale. FEMA is authorized to provide disaster assistance funds in accordance with the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 USC 5121-5206, as amended (Stafford Act, Public Law 93-288). Section 408 of the Stafford Act authorizes FEMA’s Individual Assistance Program to provide emergency temporary housing for disaster victims whose homes are uninhabitable. In accordance with 44 CFR, Subpart B, Part 10, FEMA has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) to meet the requirements of Section 102 of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) as amended per the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR § 1500-1508).
