In 2006, “Extreme Makeover” built a home in Minot, N.D., for Michelle and Bill Bliven, whose son Aaron has cerebral palsy.

“Being able to help out a family and their community and to get ‘Extreme Makeover’ back to North Dakota has been something we have been pushing for since our build in Minot,” said Tyrone Leslie, Heritage Homes chief operating officer.

“Extreme Makeover” cast member Paul DiMeo will be in Fargo-Moorhead later this week to assist in the nominating process.

There will be a public meet-and-greet event from

9 a.m. to noon Saturday at 2203 38th St. S. in Moorhead.

Applications can be downloaded and printed off at the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” website or by stopping at Heritage Homes, 1815 38th St. S., Fargo.
