Applications are now available for the Municipal Technical Assistance Program 2017-2018.

If your community is finding that your housing options are not meeting the needs of your citizens, and you need assistance in determining what needs to be done, the MTAG Program might be for you.

The MTAG Program’s purpose is to provide funds, through a competitive application process, to assist communities that want their zoning regulations to support housing options for the diverse and changing needs of their citizens.

  • Grants range $2,500 to $10,000
  • A 25% cash match is required
  • Grants may be used for planning consultants (including RPC’s) to assist in
    • Evaluating current regulations and determining the need(s) for changes/additions
    • Creating or amending current regulations
  • A portion of each grant MUST be used for outreach and community input on the project.
