A new online application system for the Federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) has been developed – GTF Online. The GTF Online system means that the GTF will no longer be administered through Alberta Transportation’s Municipal Grant Management Application (MGMA) system.
To facilitate the transition of the GTF from MGMA to GTF Online, municipalities will not be able to access GTF in MGMA or the GTF Online system from November 26, 2017, until the official GTF Online launch anticipated in early 2018.
Municipalities should submit any outstanding GTF project applications and/or reporting through MGMA prior to November 26, 2017. Note: municipalities can still submit for Alberta Transportation programs through MGMA. MGMA will continue to operate for other Transportation programs e.g. STIP
During the transition period, Municipal Affairs will continue to evaluate, process, and approve project applications received prior to November 26, 2017. Municipal Affairs will not be able to process allocation payments during the transition period.
Access to the new GTF Online will be available through MAConnect. Municipalities that have not previously used MAConnect will have to enter into a Stakeholder Agreement before requesting access to GTF Online. To request a Stakeholder Agreement, please call 780-644-2413 (toll-free by dialing 310-0000 first).
If you have any questions, please contact Shawn Fitzpatrick, Grant Advisor, toll-free at 310-0000, then 780-415-1059 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
