Program Information

Municipal Sustainability Initiative – Capital

Description

Since the program was announced in 2007, municipalities have been allocated almost $7.6 billion in Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) Capital funding to meet the demands of growth, address local infrastructure needs, and enhance municipal sustainability. The Basic Municipal Transportation Grant (BMTG) was consolidated with the MSI capital program in 2014 resulting in increased program flexibility.

All municipalities in Alberta i.e., city, town, village, specialized municipality, municipal district, improvement district, special area, Metis Settlement, and the Townsite of Redwood Meadows Administration Society, are eligible to receive MSI Capital funding based on their long-term funding agreement.

Eligible project costs directly result in, relate to, or support, the acquisition, construction, development, betterment, rehabilitation or non-routine maintenance of capital assets in a variety of project categories. General types of capital projects include municipal roads, bridges, public transit, water and wastewater systems, emergency services facilities and equipment, solid waste management facilities and equipment, and other municipal buildings and facilities such as recreation and sports facilities, libraries, public works buildings, and cultural/community centres.

MSI funds may be combined with, or used to fund the municipal contribution required under other provincial-municipal or federal-municipal grant programs, unless doing do is prohibited by that program.

Budget 2017-18: $1.18 billion (including $331 million in BMTG funds)
