To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following North Dakota Open Records Law request, copied below, and originally submitted on Oct. 20, 2018. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
1. The philosophy and goal of the department is that people do not discharge without a residence; however, in the infrequent event that a residence cannot be obtained prior to discharge, staff will give a resident a copy of local area resources from the ND Coalition for Homeless People website. https://www.ndhomelesscoalition.org/resources/
2. The records you requested cannot be provided because no such records exist.
