MAGIC CITY DISCOVERY CENTER DOD DCIP PROGRAM (G&A021)

The primary purpose of the Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot is to improve the quality of life for military families and we believe our discovery center will be a significant quality of life enhancement not only for the Minot Air Force Base but for all of our region. We will request funds to complete the Magic City Discovery Center building on North Hill. If our proposal is selected to move on to a grant application, we would bring the required Grant Agreement for Sub-award back to council for approval.

Magic City Discovery Center requests approval to apply for the Department of Defense Program entitled “Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot” (DCIP) using the City of Minot as a pass-through entity.

YWCA MINOT DOD DEFENSE COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE PILOT PROGRAM

The YWCA Minot is the only women and children’s homeless shelter in the region. The center provides Emergency Shelter, a Community Closet, the Dakota Diaper Pantry and the Fresh Start Shower Program. YWCA Minot is proposing to build a new campus because the needs of the community have pushed the current 11,250 square foot shelter to its breaking point. The Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot grant will provide the funds to acquire the land and build the YWCA Minot Campus. The campus will provide a state-of-the-art approach to eliminating socioeconomic barriers in the community. 

YWCA Minot is requesting approval to apply for the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), Department of Defense Program entitled “Defense Community Infrastructure Pilot” (DCIP) using the City of Minot as a pass-through entity.

SOURIS VALLEY ANIMAL SHELTER DOD DEFENSE COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE PILOT PROGRAM (G&A023)

The Souris Valley Animal Shelter (SVAS) is a nonprofit organization that shelters animals in the Northwest region of North Dakota. Over a span of 40 years, we have helped approximately 100,000 animals and people through adoptions, emergency services, community programs, and county contracts. The proposed grant will allow SVAS to create a state-of-the-art animal shelter by expanding and updating the current building to provide the highest quality of care for animals and capacity for programs for Minot and the military families we serve.
