Snow Removal Hero

Snow Removal Assistance

The City of Fargo funds a program that helps low income elderly and/or disabled homeowners pay for snow removal on public walks.


  1. Annual household income at or below 80% of area median income:
    • 1 person - $44,050
    • 2 people - $50,350
    • 3 people - $56,650
  2. The applicant must also be elderly (age 65 or older) and/or disabled (as defined by eligibility for Paratransit services).
  3. The applicant must be unable to remove snow themselves and cannot be living with or have another individual available who is physically able to remove the snow for them. The city will verify eligibility of program applicants and will provide the contractor with a list of pre-qualified households to which service can be provided.
