Snow Removal Assistance for Qualified Moorhead Residents
Do you know someone in need of help with shoveling?
The City of Moorhead has a new program available to assist certain homeowners with snow removal. Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds will be used to pay a contractor the City hires to remove snow for persons who are accepted into the program for 1) public sidewalk abutting home; 2) driveway; and 3) one walkway to a door. Snow removal assistance is expected to begin after February 1 or as soon as the City is able to secure a third-party contractor to provide the service.
To be eligible for assistance, a person must be:
1. A home owner. Home cannot be rental property, unless it is a single-family home for which the tenant is responsible for snow removal.
2. Physically unable to remove snow. All household member(s) must be elderly (age 65 or older) and/or disabled (as defined by eligibility for Paratransit services).
3. Under the qualifying household income limit (see chart below). Income eligibility will be determined by your 2021 household income (includes the unadjusted gross income earned by everyone living in your household over the age of 18). Social Security and Pension benefits are included as income.
• 1 person - $32,000
• 2 people - $36,550
• 3 people - $41,100
• 4 people - $45,650
