The MPCA is committed to understanding the needs of Minnesotans and works diligently to incorporate their ideas and opinions into our projects. In developing the state's plan for distributing Volkswagen settlement funds, we hosted a series of public meetings around the state. These meetings provided residents an opportunity to learn about the settlement and our ideas for spending the money (outlined in the draft plan), ask questions, and share feedback. We developed the final plan after receiving extensive public input and we are confident it reflects Minnesotans' priorities.
