Construction company owners in the state of Dakotans who live in rental units have an opportunity to save money by moving their contractors.
In fact, the Dakota Housing Authority (DHA) announced on Wednesday that it is opening up its property management system to other owners of construction workers.
The DHA said it will now allow construction companies to pay contractors for the costs of the work they perform on its property.
The system will allow owners to take advantage of the new program.
“For many homeowners in the area, they will be able to rent out their work space and get paid on time for the work,” the DHA explained.
In addition, the DSA will allow homeowners to deduct the costs for cleaning, insurance, and other utilities they have to pay out of their own pockets.
Construction workers are typically paid a base rate of $50 an hour.
In addition to the base rate, workers will also be allowed to deduct up to $5,000 per month for utilities, such as electricity, water, gas, and water services.
The DHA also plans to offer additional incentives for owners to pay their contractors for their services.
“Our goal is to ensure that all construction workers are paid on the same basis as their non-tenant counterparts,” said David P. Karp, DHA President and CEO.
“The new DHA service will help to improve the economic and social status of construction and real estate workers in the region, and allow more Dakotan construction workers to earn a living wage.”

Construction workers have traditionally faced discrimination and low wages.
DHA will help them learn about the new system and work toward their goals of a $30,000 federal grant to assist with relocation costs and relocation expenses.
