The North Dakota Department of Commerce recently launched, NDDisasterInfo.com, a new website for individuals and businesses impacted by 2011 weather-related events. NDDisasterInfo.com brings together information about federal and state funding resources available to North Dakotans after a disaster occurs.
“This new state website was created for the sole purpose of serving homeowners, business owners, farmers and ranchers across North Dakota who need flood recovery information,” Governor Jack Dalrymple said. “We want to provide them with an integrated information source where they can learn about financial assistance programs and many other resources that are available to help people recover from these devastating floods.”
The site focus is on answering three basic questions for businesses and individuals:
- What funding is available for those impacted by a disaster? (Is there a deadline? Am I eligible? How do I apply?)
- How do I recover after a disaster?
- How do I prepare myself in case of a future disaster?
“This new resource is a valuable tool for individuals and businesses as they deal with the recovery efforts of the flood,” Commerce Commissioner Alan Anderson said. “NDDisasterInfo.com will play an essential role in helping individuals and businesses across our state to connect with resources to recover from flood losses.”
NDDisasterInfo.com will also serve as the future home for state and federal information and programs related to future disasters.
“We built the NDDisasterInfo.com site so North Dakotans would have one place to go for financial information as it relates to the 2011 flood events,” Anderson said. “If you are looking for user-friendly information, this is the place to start.”
