Armatage Safety Rebate Program Turns Two!
Cheers to two years of the Armatage Safety Rebate program! Since starting in July 2018, we’ve given out 180 residential rebates and 3 business rebates and counting.
How it works: to increase neighborhood safety, the ANA provides a rebate for the first $100 in expenses for eligible home safety improvements per address per calendar year (no lifetime cap). The residential program is open to both renters and homeowners. For businesses, the rebate is up to $1,000/ year for businesses ($2,000 lifetime cap). Learn more about eligible expenses and apply for a rebate at https://armatage.org/programs/
Proposed Armatage Neighborhood Funding Cuts
The City of Minneapolis is considering a plan that would drastically reduce the annual funding for Armatage and many other neighborhoods. We believe there can be a better balance that will increase funding for equity while allowing small neighborhoods like Armatage to keep doors open. Visit armatage.org/n2020 for a message you can quickly send to the Mpls City Council by September 30, 2020.
We’re compiling anti-racism resources starting with the Hennepin County Library’s four eBooks (pictured) that are available for download with no holds.
We’ll keep adding to this resource page at armatage.org/anti-racism-resources/
