Program Overview

The Municipal Innovation Grant (MIG) program awards funding on a competitive basis to entities who have taxing authority (i.e. cities, towns, villages, school/water/sewer/fire districts). Priority is given to projects that are multi-jurisdictional, leverage other funding sources, dissolve a layer of government and demonstrate savings to taxpayers, a reduction in the property tax levy or a significant increase in the municipal tax base, while providing an equal or better level of service. 

Entities other than municipalities that will be the lead applicant must provide a letter of support from the chief elected official from all the local municipalities (City, Town or Village) for which they provide services.

View the complete list of the MIG Focus Areas & Categories under which applicants can apply.

Funding is awarded on an annual basis. We will begin soliciting applications for the next grant cycle in early April.
