Bismarck, ND–The lack of affordable and accessible housing in North Dakota has struck the need for The Dakota Center for Independent Living to hold a Housing Forum on September 10, 2014, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Bismarck Ramada Hotel & Conference Center. The event will provide an opportunity for the public to come together to discuss housing issues affecting the citizens of North Dakota.
Issues to be discussed include: accessibility, affordability, Section 8 vouchers and waiting lists, and decent/livable low-income housing. Citizens are encouraged to share their stories of housing struggles.
A panel will also be present to discuss what they are doing to ease the housing crisis. Panelists include: Kristen Hamm, regional director for U.S. Senator John Hoeven; Renae Aarfor, SouthEast area director for U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp; Daryl Lies, staff representative for U.S. Congressman Kevin Cramer; North Dakota State Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner, and Dickinson Mayor Dennis Johnson.
If you’d like to attend, please RSVP by contacting Royce Schultze at (701) 222-3636 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
