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. This week, FCM has begun announcing applications that have been approved thus far. Some applicants may have submitted applications during the previous intake for MAMP, but were fast tracked for consideration under the current MAMP intake.
Below is a summary of the announced recipients, categorized by province, along with links to free educational webinars corresponding to the asset management activities being funded through MAMP.
