Amended Program (2014-2024)
The Amended Program is a residential noise mitigation program that began in March 2014 under the terms of an amended legal agreement (Consent Decree) between the MAC, the cities of Richfield, Minneapolis, Eagan; and the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority. The Hennepin County District Court approval of this agreement is effective until December 31, 2024. Under this program, eligibility of single-family and multi-family homes will be determined annually, based upon actual noise contours that are developed for the preceding calendar year, beginning in March 2014.

Third-Year Address List (2017 Eligible for mitigation)
Second-Year Address List (Not yet eligible for mitigation)
First-Year Address List (Not yet eligible for mitigation)
If your home is included on the Third-Year Eligibility Address List, it meets the criteria for mitigation according to the Amended Program. Mitigation projects will begin in 2017. Initial contact letters and questionnaires to 2017 eligible homeowners have been sent. Orientation meeting invitations will be sent to 2017 eligible homeowners during the week of February 13, 2017.

Other eligibility criteria that a single-family or multi-family home must meet before sound insulation is applied to the home are as follows:
(a) the community in which the home is located has adopted local land use controls and building performance standards that prohibit new residential construction or remodeling on the block in which the home is located, unless the construction or remodeling materials and practices are consistent with the noise impact levels and consistent with noise mitigation provided by this program, and
(b) the home is located, for a period of three consecutive years (the first of the three years cannot be later than calendar year 2020) in the actual 60-64 DNL noise contour published in the Annual Noise Contour Analysis report, and, within a higher noise impact mitigation area when compared to the home's status under the noise mitigation program prior to the amendment.
The MAC will offer noise mitigation to owners of eligible single-family homes and multi-family homes in the year following the determination of eligibility.

If your home is not located within the Amended Program eligibility area map, then your home is not eligible for noise mitigation under the MAC's Noise Mitigation Program. You may find this additional information to be helpful: Click here for TIPS on how to insulate your home against aircraft noise.
