The following FACTS are from a 2012 story in the Minnesota Spokesman-RecorderThe Minnesota Helps — North Minneapolis Recovery Fund distributed the donated money across six general service areas: basic needs ($296,284), case management ($428,250), children and youth ($292,593), employment ($307,533), housing ($339,400), and small business ($92,000).


“Six navigators at six different sites” were hired overall to assist Northside tornado victims, two through Pillsbury United Communities, which received one $35,000 grant directly from Minnesota Helps and other unspecified allocations through the NCRT.

He says the NCRT gave the Minneapolis Foundation its most recent financial report on June 29. “All the money was spent,” says Coleman. A balance sheet provided by Coleman shows remaining cash on hand of $470.78. However, the balance sheet accounts for only $160,668 of at least $395,000 the NCRT received from Minneapolis Helps Fund. The foundation says a final report is expected later this summer.
