Amended Program (2014-2024)
The Amended Program is a residential noise mitigation program related to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) 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 MSP noise contours developed for the preceding calendar year, beginning in March 2014.

If your home is included on the Third-Year Eligibility Address List, it meets the criteria for mitigation and the MAC will contact you in-writing. Mitigation projects will begin the year following the determination of eligibility.

The following provides the eligibility criteria that a single-family or multi-family home must meet before sound insulation is provided:
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.
