Community breakdown of Northern Capital and Planning Grant

The grant funding will be distributed to local governments based on a combination of a flat amount and an adjusted per-capita amount. A larger share of the grant money — 60% — will go to smaller local governments that lack economies of scale and a strong commercial or industrial tax base.

Each eligible municipal local government must place the money in a separate reserve fund for capital and planning purposes.

The municipalities will need to report on the use of money in this reserve fund over each calendar year, and the balance of the reserve fund at the end of each calendar year.
