The City of Minneapolis and nonprofits across the metro area have a lot of resources for homeowners! Check out a few of them below:

The City of Minneapolis Homeowner Resource Guide [LINK] includes everything from information on Building Code requirements, to how to get a loan for home improvements, to energy assistance programs.

Wondering how to make your home more energy efficient? Check out the MN Energy Challenge website [LINK]  for ways that you can make upgrades to your home and go green. Still not sure where to start when making efficiency upgrades? Get help from the Xcel Energy Home Energy Squad [LINK] who can help find areas of your home where upgrades could save you money.

Communicate with your neighbors by signing up for an account on [LINK], a geographically-based social media network. With an account you’ll be able to see messages from your neighbors about what’s happening in your community. You can also post information you think your neighbors should know like a garage sale time, lost/stolen items, and make recommendations for contractors/babysitters/etc.
