Strategic asset management is the foundation for asset resiliency and providing sustainable services
Municipalities across Canada play a critical role in delivering essential services and infrastructure to Canadians. In balancing routine service provision with the need for informed strategic decision-making, municipalities are faced with the conundrum of finding innovative ways to accomplish more with less. FCM’s MAMP helps to address the issue by providing grants to support cities, towns, counties and Indigenous communities seeking to pursue asset management projects.
What is the Municipal Asset Management Program?
The MAMP is a grant initiative developed to support Canadian local governments and communities in strengthening their asset management practices, making informed infrastructure investment decisions based in resilient asset management practices, and increasing skills within local governments to maintain sustainable service delivery and asset management programs.
What are the program requirements?
The program is available to Canadian municipalities, as well as partner organizations that submit complete applications for eligible activities. Additional information on eligibility, project requirements, and program guidelines can be found on the FCM website.
