GRAFFITI REMOVAL AND PREVENTION
City of Minneapolis requires graffiti to be removed by the property owner within 10 days. Free products to remove spray paint are available at Minneapolis Fire Stations and at CNO’s office. Please report graffiti with gang markings to 311. Upon request a CNO staff member can visit your home to review graffiti prevention tactics such as stagger fence posts, security lighting or murals.
If you’re behind on your mortgage-or worried that you might not be able to make future payments, the CNO can connect you with a counselor who can negotiate with your mortgage company to modify your mortgage so that you can afford the payments. This is a free service with no minimum or maximum income limit.
