YWCA MINOT DOD DEFENSE COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE PILOT PROGRAM
The YWCA Minot is the only women and children’s homeless shelter in the region. The center provides Emergency Shelter, a Community Closet, the Dakota Diaper Pantry and the Fresh Start Shower Program. YWCA Minot is proposing to build a new campus because the needs of the community have pushed the current 11,250 square foot shelter to its breaking point. The Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot grant will provide the funds to acquire the land and build the YWCA Minot Campus. The campus will provide a state-of-the-art approach to eliminating socioeconomic barriers in the community.
YWCA Minot is requesting approval to apply for the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), Department of Defense Program entitled “Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot” (DCIP) using the City of Minot as a pass-through entity.
