Twelve Municipalities to Receive Funding
April 1, 2014
More than $13.0 million in funding, through the Competitive Grant Assistance Program (CGAP), will be awarded to 12 local units of government across Michigan. CGAP helps offset costs associated with mergers, consolidations, inter-local agreements, and cooperative efforts for local units, authorities, and school districts.
“This program continues to be a valuable tool for municipalities and school districts looking to collaborate with neighboring units, implement best practices, and get the most of their limited tax dollars,” Gov. Rick Snyder said. “The local units of government receiving these grants have demonstrated a serious commitment to collaboration, consolidation, and mergers which support the goals of good government.”
The following communities will receive CGAP Grants for the first round of fiscal year 2014 with projects and amounts noted (alphabetical order):
Ann Arbor Township
Collaborate with Superior Township for Fire Department Feasibility Study - $8,819
City of Coldwater
