*Important* changes to our grant application process
FCM’s Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) has received an exceptional number of applications for its Asset management grants for municipalities since opening in May 2020. This is a clear indication that Canadian municipalities, particularly smaller municipalities, are eager to improve their asset management practices with the support of MAMP funding and resources.
To ensure that we continue to assess applications and provide funding quickly and efficiently, we are adjusting our application process. These changes do not impact applications already submitted or projects already approved for funding.
We are currently processing applications received prior to September 22, 2020 in the order they were received. A second call for applications period will begin on January 19, 2021.
Municipalities deliver essential services and infrastructure that support Canadians’ quality of life. From the roads and bridges that keep people and goods moving, to the treatment plants that make our water safe to drink, local governments are building better lives for residents.
We are offering grants to help your municipality strengthen its asset management practices. This will help you make the most of every infrastructure dollar. It will help you secure the future of your transportation systems, drinking water and wastewater systems, buildings and other key infrastructure. It will equip you to continue providing your community with reliable services and a high quality of life.
FCM’s Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) funding will be especially helpful if you are a small or medium-sized community.
