For the first time, Waite Park is offering $100 mini-rebates to organized block clubs. These grants have been used to purchase plantings and gardening materials for public areas, neighborhood trash pick-up projects, and similar projects that get neighbors up and out and working together to improve our neighborhood. Other examples might be erecting a block club sign, hosting a crime prevention seminar, or paying for materials for your block club event including National Night Out. Adopt a family at the holidays or participate in Toys for Tots and have a neighborhood gift-wrapping party! See how creative you can be! You can combine with other block clubs to do a bigger project.
Waite Park residents who are part of a current block club recognized by the Minneapolis Police Department Second Precinct or a non-CCP Safe block club that hosts at least 1 gathering a year which all block club members are invited, as verified by 2 block club members are eligible for this rebate.
