Fargo Housing Hub
Fargo Housing provides homes and services for income-qualified individuals, families, seniors, veterans and disabled community members. No matter your situation, we will work with you and help you overcome your obstacles to finding and keeping a home.
If you are experiencing a housing crisis and are in the Fargo/Moorhead community or greater North Dakota area, call 2-1-1 to be connected to a shelter or resources.
Our community offers a tight-knit network of organizations committed to serving our folks.
Housing Choice Vouchers (HCVs), formerly known as Section 8, help pay the rent in the form of Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) that are paid directly to a private landlord. Residents will generally contribute 30% of their income as their portion of rent to the landlord. Residents are responsible for finding rentals that accept HCVs.
Fargo Housing communities offer the comfort and support you want for your family at a price you can afford. Each Fargo Housing community has its own personality and accompanying set of features. The types of homes available range from four bedroom single family homes to individual apartments.
The Coordinated Access, Referral, Entry & Stabilization (CARES) System is the homeless response system and link to housing for people in housing crisis for all of North Dakota and the ten counties in West Central Minnesota. This system was designed to create simplified and clear pathways to housing assistance, shelter, and other resources for those experiencing homelessness or a housing crisis. CARES is an innovative, multi-jurisdictional approach to implementing evidence based best practices, including coordinated entry.
Family and resident services
Resident Services – ROSS Program
ROSS Service Coordinators link residents of public housing and Indian housing that is funded through the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act (NAHASDA) with supportive services and activities that enable them to make progress towards economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.
The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program is a United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) employment and savings incentive program for low-income families who have a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), a.k.a. Section 8, or live in public housing.
The medical respite program serves individuals that are experiencing homelessness and need a place to stay after receiving significant medical care, such as surgery. Designated units are available at YWCA Cass Clay, New Life Center, and New Horizons Manor.
