Grants in Place of Taxes


A municipality may apply for Grants in Place of Taxes (GIPOT) funding if there is property in the municipality that the Crown has an interest in to assist with the cost of providing municipal services.

GIPOT grants are based on the property taxes the Crown would pay if the property were not exempt  from taxation.

To receive GIPOT funding, applications (tax notices) for eligible property must be submitted during the tax year the  municipality is applying for funding.  Applications are approved by the Minister of Municipal Affairs.

Budget allocation for 2015-16: $64.7 million.
