Applicants must email their proposal, using the Proposal Submittal form, on or before Wednesday, July 21, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. to Judy Moses. Proposals will not be accepted after the deadline. The Notice of Funding Availability and Proposal Submittal form can be found at the link below. https://www2.minneapolismn.gov/business-services/doing-business-with-the-city/community-planning-development-rfps/Be safe with fireworks, keep 911 open for emergencies Fourth of July fireworks are part of Independence Day celebrations, and the noise complaints and safety issues they can generate lead to high call volumes at 911 call centers across the country. That’s why the City wants to make sure folks stay safe during fireworks season and know what to do if they have fireworks-related complaints.

Fireworks safety

  • Read, understand and follow the instructions on each device before using.
  • Use fireworks with close adult supervision.
  • Choose a safe place to use fireworks. Fireworks should only be ignited outdoors and away from animals, buildings, storage tanks, brush or combustible materials.
  • Anyone acting in an irresponsible manner or who appears to be under the influence of alcohol or other drugs should not handle or discharge fireworks.
  • Keep fireworks away from small children and store them in a cool dry location away from sources of ignition (heat and flames).
  • Never ignite fireworks inside another container such as a bottle or can.

What’s legal, what’s not

  • Non-explosive fireworks are legal in Minneapolis. Examples include sparklers, cones, tubes that spark, snakes and party poppers.
  • It is legal to use these types of fireworks in your yard or on your sidewalk.
  • Fireworks that explode or take off are illegal in Minneapolis. Examples include firecrackers, bottle rockets, missiles, roman candles, mortars and shells.
  • It is illegal to use any fireworks on public property including roads, alleys, schools and parks.

When to call 911

For fireworks-related issues that pose life safety threats or fire hazards, residents should call 911 for police, fire or medical help.
Examples of calls that should go to 911 include: 

  • A person injured by fireworks.
  • Airborne fireworks landing on a building or wooded area posing a fire risk.
  • The size of a fireworks gathering and unruly behavior beginning to pose a threat to others.

Make noise reports online Reducing the number of noise complaints to 911 will allow emergency calls to be answered as quickly as possible. On a typical Fourth of July evening, Minneapolis 911 receives hundreds of calls per hour, most of which are related to fireworks noise complaints. On a normal day, Minneapolis 911 will receive fewer than 100 calls per hour. Because of the volume, police officers cannot be dispatched to each fireworks noise incident around the Fourth of July but calls will be prioritized to ensure public safety.

Instead of calling 911 for Fourth of July noise reports, people are asked to make noise reports online; the reports will be reviewed during normal business hours. Noise reports may also be made through the or by calling 311. You can also text “fireworks” to 311898  to enter a fireworks complaint on the City’s website.

Residents should note that Minneapolis 311 is closed July 4, but the mobile application can be used any time to make a report. City staff will review the complaint during normal business hours when offices open again and may follow up with the property owner the complaint references. For more fireworks safety tips visit https://www.fireworkssafety.org/safety-tips

June 2021 Understanding NEAR Science & Historical Trauma Workshop w/ FamilyWise Services and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota @ 10am-3:30pm • FREE • Online Event
Join us for a free , VIRTUAL , day-long workshop on Understanding NEAR* Science & Historical Trauma
* NEAR Science stands for neurobiology, epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) & resilience research

You are invited to attend a day-long workshop to learn how historical trauma, intergenerational trauma, and childhood adversity impact our lives, the lives of our children, and the health of our communities. The goal of this workshop is to build a common language and understanding about NEAR Science and Historical Trauma as a starting point .

All are welcome, and we encourage diverse cultural and identity groups to attend this workshop. Each of us hold wisdom to create healthier communities, and after attending this workshop, attendees are encouraged to think about how this information can be applied within their own family, work life, and community. The workshop will be divided into two presentations. First, FamilyWise will present the Understanding NEAR Science: Building Self-Healing Communities presentation, which represents a paradigm shift in human understanding of individual and societal health and well-being. This presentation highlights key findings from the fields of neurobiology, epigenetics, epidemiology, and resilience research, demonstrating the impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on health and well-being and offering strategies to build resilience.

After a break for lunch, the Trauma Across Generations: Reclaiming the Narrative presentation, facilitated by Sam Simmons, will increase awareness of the link between historical trauma and community challenges to effectively engage communities of color. Also, the presentation will discuss the harm that approaches without cultural sensitivity can have on communities of color. This training is brought to you by BlueCross BlueShield of Minnesota & FamilyWise Services


Language and Culture in Sync: Teaching Linguistic Politeness and Intercultural Awareness w/ CARLA – Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition @ 9am • Online Event
Online: carla.umn.edu
https://carla.umn.edu/institutes/2021/linguistic.html
**REGISTRATION REQUIRED**

Language and Culture in Sync: Teaching Linguistic Politeness and Intercultural Awareness June 28–July 16, 2021
Asynchronous* 3-week online summer institute

A truly daunting challenge for second language learners is to adjust their language use so that it is appropriate for a variety of socio-cultural contexts. How, for example, are learners supposed to address strangers, close friends, or people of higher social status in that culture? Although acquiring culturally-sensitive discourse practices can take learners many years, research has shown that the process can be facilitated through explicit instruction.

This institute provides practical insights for teachers on how to enhance the learning of linguistic politeness and boost students’ awareness of intercultural differences. Participants will have hands-on opportunities to develop activities and materials for the classroom.

Instructor: Noriko Ishihara is Professor of Applied Linguistics and TESOL/EFL at Hosei University, Japan. She has designed and researched pragmatics-focused instruction and classroom-based assessment in ESL, EFL, and Japanese. She has been facilitating professional development for language teachers in Japan, the US, and elsewhere since 2005 and is a co-author with Andrew D. Cohen of a teachers’ guide, Teaching and Learning Pragmatics: Where Language and Culture Meet.

Target Audience: Elementary to postsecondary foreign language and ESL teachers, material developers, curriculum coordinators, teacher educators, administrators, and researchers.

The 2021 municipal election is Nov. 2 with early voting beginning Sept. 17. Offices on the Minneapolis ballot include: mayor, City Council, Board of Estimate and Taxation, and the Park and Recreation Board.

Candidates who wish to get their name on the ballot must file for office with the City between July 27 and Aug. 10. To support prospective candidates and campaign workers, the City is hosting multiple information sessions for candidates. The first session was recorded on May 19and covered what candidates need to know about the process of filing for office. The second session will be hosted live next Wednesday, June 23.

Upcoming virtual session: The roles and responsibilities of the mayor and City Council
The City Clerk will walk through the job description of the mayor and City Council members. This session is aimed to give candidates a good idea of their role, if elected. We’ll also leave time at the end to answer audience questions.

City of Minneapolis Sustainability Updates:



Need to report theft or property damage? The City of Minneapolis is changing the way residents report non-violent, non-emergency theft and property damage not in progress. Starting June 14, non-police City employees at 311 will take these reports from Minneapolis residents instead of 911 dispatching Minneapolis Police officers. You can report theft or property damage in two ways:

Minneapolis 311 takes calls from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday – Friday but you will need to call between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to make a theft or property damage report. If you need to make a report outside these hours or on holidays, you can:

You will receive an incident case number when you file a report whether you submit your report online or by calling 311. The quickest way to generate an incident case number for your report is to file it online. If the theft or property damage is occurring at the time of call, call 911. This is a service change aligned with the City’s work around seeking alternatives to police response. The goal is to reduce administrative capacity for police and improve service experiences. Results of the program will be assessed throughout the year. Learn more about alternatives to police response.

If you choose to get a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, you would require a second dose three weeks later (Pfizer) or four weeks later (Moderna). You will be fully vaccinated two weeks after your second dose. Walk-ins are welcome, and the vaccinations are free. You don’t need insurance, you don’t need an appointment and you don’t need an ID.

Upcoming clinics

Find more information on the Health Department’s website

Other ways to get a vaccine Vaccines work. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, get a free vaccine as soon as you can. COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations have plummeted as more Minnesotans receive their vaccine. About nine out of 10 Americans live within 5 miles of a COVID-19 vaccination site. Lyftand Uber are offering free rides to vaccination appointments until July 4.

Sick and Safe Time covers vaccine appointments Accrued sick and safe time hours can be used to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and recover from any side effects. Learn more about the City’s Sick and Safe Time ordinance.

Get a free COVID-19 test and help stop the spread

The City of Minneapolis is offering free COVID-19 saliva tests. Testing is one of the best ways to stop the spread of COVID-19 and help prevent exposing your loved ones to the virus along with wearing masks correctly, keeping 6 feet from anyone you don’t live with, hand-washing and getting vaccinated.

The State is now urging athletes, coaches, referees, volunteers and other sports participants to get tested for COVID-19 weekly. Students not participating in sports or other group activities are still strongly encouraged to test every two weeks.

Health officials now estimate that 60% of all COVID-19 cases in Minnesota are associated with the B.1.1.7 variant, a more transmissible version of the virus that may be associated with more severe symptoms. Much of the spread of COVID-19 in recent weeks has been seen in younger Minnesotans, particularly among middle and high school.

Free COVID-19 tests

Do not eat, drink or use tobacco products for 30 minutes before taking a COVID-19 saliva test.
