Rural/urban cost sharing

AUMA and AAMDC developed the cost sharing toolkit based on the Rural/Urban Cost-sharing Task Force Report entitled Cost-sharing for success: a pro-active approach.

Although the cost-sharing report and tool kit has limitations, we believe that the principles, practices and resources it contains will improve the potential for success in municipal cost-sharing agreements.

They have been developed to be applicable to elected officials and municipal administration, and are relevant for municipalities of all sizes, geographic locations and demographics.
