Region VIII Emergency Services

CAP provides services to assist individuals or families in emergency situations. Agency staff work closely with community agencies throughout western North Dakota. CAP programs have various income guidelines, restrictions and limited funding.

Rental Assistance

Limited assistance is available for monthly rent on an emergency basis. CAP does not provide permanent and on-going assistance for rent. We may help with one month's back rent to help prevent eviction or a first-month’s  rent to assist individuals into a permanent housing. Availability of this service depends on availability of funds.

Rental Aecurity Deposit

Security Deposits are available to income qualified individuals. Potential renters must not have signed a lease or moved in prior to completing the application process with CAP. Security Deposits are limited to one per household per life time. The rent for the property must not exceed 30 percent of the household income. The property must also pass inspection by the agency.

Energy Share (Utilities)

This program addresses issues with a household’s gas/electric bills. Qualified individuals must be qualified for Fuel Assistance under their county Social Service Office. CAP may pay a percentage of the past 90 day electric bill. County Social Servies Fuel Assistance Program pays for the gas/heating portion of your energy bill.

Budget Counseling

Management of personal finances is the goal of this program.  Individuals and families have an opportunity to work with staff to identify how they are spending their money and assist them in planning and implementing options to bring them to a balanced monthly budget.  Staff may be able to negotiate with credit card companies in reducing interest rates and monthly payments.

Food Pantry Referrals

CAP authorizes referrals for individuals facing financial crisis to the AMEN Food Pantry in Dickinson. Referrals are limited to once every 30 days. The AMEN Food Pantry is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m.

Senior Commodity Supplemental Food Program

This program distributes commodity foods to low income elderly households and families not eligible for WIC. The commodities are non-perishable food items that include fruits, vegetables, meats, cheese, beans, pasta, etc. Participants receive one box and one bag of food every other month. To qualify individuals must be 60 years of age or older and be income eligible. Families with children up to 6 years of age who are not eligible for WIC may also qualify if their income falls within the guidelines.
