The second round of intakes for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) was announced in May 2020. MAMP provides funding to accelerate organizations’ asset management programs and includes activities such as development of asset management plans, asset management training, implementation of asset management software, and asset-related data collection. Successful applicants receive funding that covers 80 percent of total eligible project costs for municipalities with a population over 1,000 and 90% for a population under 1,000, to a maximum of $50,000.
Last week, FCM announced MAMP funding recipients from the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Saskatchewan. This week, FCM has begun announcing approved projects in Ontario.
