Submit your application for an Alberta Community Partnership grant now!

December 12, 2017

Municipal Affairs is currently accepting applications for the following 2017/18 Alberta Community Partnership (ACP) grants:

  • Intermunicipal Collaboration (IC): the deadline for IC applications is January 2, 2018, but applicants have until February 2, 2018, to obtain supporting council resolutions from partnership municipalities.

    • Provides funding to partnerships of two or more municipalities to develop or expand regional municipal service delivery.

    • The IC component grant criteria has been updated to prioritize the selection of projects that support intermunicipal collaboration framework (ICF) development. This includes projects that directly produce frameworks for regional approaches to service delivery, address outstanding regional service gaps, and resolve capacity-related barriers to build regional service frameworks.

  • Mediation and Cooperative Process (MCP): application deadline is February 1, 2018.

    • Provides funding to municipalities to help develop collaborative protocols and processes to manage conflict proactively, and to enable municipalities to rely on an agreed-upon process for collaboration.

    • Provides funding to support municipalities in using mediation, facilitation, or other dispute resolution alternatives to resolve inter-municipal conflict.

    • A new stream has also been established under the MCP component to support ICF negotiating. These funds are available to municipal partnerships that may need additional facilitation support in their ICF negotiations to help them be successful in building upon their important regional relationships.

  • Municipal Restructuring (MR): application deadline is February 1, 2018.

    • Provides funding to municipalities involved with regional governance and municipal restructuring processes such as amalgamation, dissolution, or viability reviews.

Additional details, and the application form and program guidelines can be found on the Municipal Affairs website.
