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.
