Did you know that you can get money for making your home more secure? It’s true! Welcome to the wild world of neighborhood grant programs!
This Home Security Grant program allows Saint Anthony East residents to choose what home security option makes the most sense for their particular situation. SAENA 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.
Ready to apply? Here’s the link to the application!
To apply for the grant, please submit your application to SAENA via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mail (PO Box 18130, Minneapolis, MN, 55418). SAENA 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 SAENA. When your project is completed, and you’ve submitted all receipts and proof of City inspection (if applicable), you will be reimbursed by SAENA.
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.
