The Beltrami Neighborhood Council (BNC) announces the Home Security Grant. This flexible grant program allows Beltrami residents to choose what home security option makes the most sense for their particular situation. The BNC will reimburse residents for up to $100 in home security improvements. Eligible improvements include: new locks for windows and doors, motion sensor lights for the exterior of your home, new strike plates, replacements for broken windows or doors, security cameras, etc.
To apply for the grant, please submit an application to the Beltrami Neighborhood Council via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mail (PO Box 18297, Minneapolis, MN, 55418). The BNC will contact you within 10 business days to inform you of the status of your application. Once your project is approved, you can proceed knowing you have funding from the BNC. When your project is completed, and you’ve submitted all receipts and proof of City inspection (if applicable), you will be reimbursed by the BNC.
If you recently made security improvements (since May 1, 2016), you can retroactively apply for the grant as long as all the documentation requirements of the grant process are met.
If you are unsure on where to start on improving your home security, we recommend contacting MPD Crime Prevention Specialist, Nick Juarez at 612-673-2797 for a free Home Security Audit. If you have any other questions, please call 612-229-8480.
