What is NRP?
LHINC participates in the Minneapolis Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP). It is a unique effort to change the future of the City's neighborhoods, making them better places to live, work, learn and play. NRP provides funding to support neighborhood organization's administrative needs, as well as to create a variety of neighborhood improvement projects. Community-based planning and priority setting direct how these funds were allocated in areas such as: housiing improvements, park enhancements, crime prevention, community-building events, newsletter development, environmental initiatives and more!
NRP was split into two ten-year phases; Phase I for Linden Hills began in 1994 and received funding of $1.76 million. Ninety-nine percent of those funds are encumbered or expended to date. Phase II began in 2003 and LHINC is currently implementing several projects. Funds totaling $530,161 were received for LHINC NRP Phase II.
In Linden Hills, the LHiNC Board of Directors oversees the process of planning and implementing NRP projects. For more information about the overall Minneapolis NRP, please visit the NRP website at www.nrp.org
