Snow Removal Hero

Snow Removal Assistance

The City of Fargo funds a program that helps low and moderate income homeowners who are elderly and/or disabled with snow removal services. Funds will be used to pay a contractor the City hires to remove snow for households who are accepted into the program for their public sidewalk, their driveway, and one walkway to their door. Applicants will be prioritized primarily on a first-come-first-served basis.


  1. The applicant must live in the home; it cannot be rental property.
  2. Household occupants must be physically unable to remove snow. All household members must be elderly (age 65 or older) and/or disabled (as defined by eligibility for Paratransit services).
  3. The annual household income may not exceed 80% of the median income, as defined by HUD (see below chart). 2019 household income includes the unadjusted gross income earned by everyone living in the household over the age of 18. Please note that Social Security and Pension benefits are included as income.
    • 1 person - $47,150
    • 2 people - $53,850
    • 3 people - $60,600
