Security Rebate Program

All available 2022 funds for this program have been distributed.

Tangletown Neighborhood Association offered a security rebate program to assist our residents in making safety improvements to their homes and apartments. The rebate covered a variety of safety improvements listed below and we matched 50% of expenses up to $500. The funds for this program were limited and have all been distributed, however, we may consider offering this program again if more funds become available.

The neighborhood boundaries are 46th Street to the north, Interstate 35W to the east, Diamond Lake Road to the south, and Lyndale Avenue South to the west.

Rebates are only available for existing properties, not new construction. Businesses and commercial property owners are not eligible to participate. Each household is eligible for up to $500 per household on a first come, first served basis.
