Luke is going to find some job descriptions, person we hire would have to have a lot more involvement

There is also need for an onsite restroom

Also there is a need to charge vendors for tables

ANA Offers Two New Housing Loan Programs

You spoke and we listened! Through a strategic planning process in early 2015, residents overwhelmingly said they wanted ANA to focus on programs that would benefit the neighborhood’s housing stock. The Housing Committee worked hard on crafting two different programs using Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) dollars—a Revolving Loan Program and an Emergency Deferred Loan Program.
Both of the ANA loan programs are administered by the Greater Metropolitan Housing Corporation (GMHC). To apply for either loan, contact GMHC’s Housing Resource Center at 612-588-3028, which is located at 2148 44th Ave N.
Revolving Loan Program
Interest Rate: The interest rate charged on the loan will be based on the household's gross annual income. Interest rates are subject to change.
Interest Rate Total Annual Gross Household Income
