ND United Way – The Missouri Slope Areawide United Way has launched a Pandemic Relief Fund. The nonprofit said the fund aims to “support our community’s unsheltered residents who are especially vulnerable to the coronavirus, and low-income individuals, students and families at imminent risk of hunger and homelessness due to health and economic impacts of coronavirus.” The fund will:
1. Provide assistance to ensure vulnerable populations have access to food (to include weekend hunger for students, elderly meal deliveries to their homes, food distribution sites in high-poverty neighborhoods).
2. Support the response to protect unsheltered and most vulnerable residents through this crisis.
3. Support to agencies who provide emergency assistance to individuals and families affected by this crisis, through targeted investments where jobs and wage reductions are disproportionately impacted.
4. Provide additional support to our non-profit partners, in alignment with our mission to break the cycle of poverty, that experience a decline in giving due to the pandemic & its impact on the economy & giving cycles. People can get more information or donate at:
Bank of ND – Bank of North Dakota (BND) shared its student loan relief plans to assist borrowers impacted by COVID-19 with the Industrial Commission today. Effective immediately, borrowers may request to defer payments for six months. The interest rate for variable rate borrowers decreases April 1, 2020, so BND will reduce payments to reflect the new interest rate. In addition, all borrowers with a fixed interest rate will receive a decrease in their interest rates by at least 1 percent when the Bank is able to work through technical issues.
