The Municipal Investment Grant (MIG) Program, formerly known as the Municipal Innovation Grant 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 partner with other municipalities and taxing authorities, develop shared services, align with the County’s priorities and needs, and create savings for taxpayers.
If a taxing authority other than a municipal entity is applying for funding, the application must be submitted by a municipal entity (city, town, or village) on behalf of the taxing authority (public authorities and fire, school, library, and special districts). Entities are encouraged to coordinate efforts and apply jointly, when possible, but each grant proposal must be submitted by a municipal entity as the lead applicant.
Funding is awarded on an annual basis.
