If you moved between last year and now, please be sure your new address is on your 2023 individual income tax return filing.
Competitive Grant Assistance Program
The purpose of the grant program is to provide incentive-based grants to stimulate smaller, more efficient government and encourage mergers, consolidations, and cooperations between two or more qualified jurisdictions.
The grants are to offset the costs associated with mergers, interlocal agreements, and cooperative efforts for cities, villages, townships, counties, authorities, school districts, intermediate school districts, public community colleges, and public universities that elect to combine government operations.
The program is focused on stimulating projects between two or more qualified jurisdictions that are creating new mergers, consolidations, and/or cooperative efforts/collaborations of existing services.
All Michigan cities, villages, townships, counties, authorities, school districts, intermediate school districts, public community colleges, and public universities.
For an authority, school district, intermediate school district, public community college, or public university to qualify for grant funding under this program, the authority, school district, intermediate school district, public community college, or public university must combine operations with a city, village, township, or county.
