Grants to Rhode Island local government agencies for infrastructure projects. Funding is intended to increase economic growth and development throughout the state. Special consideration will be given to projects addressing job expansion and creation, housing rehabilitation and development, and community development projects in areas or districts that communities have determined are best suited to efficiently accommodate future growth or redevelopment.
The Municipal Infrastructure Grant Program (MIGP) is a competitive grant program providing capital funds for municipalities, and other public entities, to make improvements to public infrastructure. The overall goal is to support projects that can achieve economic development and growth by accelerating housing production, spurring private development, and creating jobs across Rhode Island.
A proposed project must be for improvements to land and/or infrastructure that is currently publicly owned or can be acquired through public leasehold, right-of-way or easement in timely manner. Applicants may request funding for predevelopment activities (such as due diligence and preparation of engineering documents) and/or for direct construction work. Program investments will be targeted to projects that support job creation and expansion, housing development and rehabilitation, community development projects in areas or districts that communities have determined are best suited to efficiently accommodate future growth or redevelopment. An applicant may submit more than one application in the same round for different projects.
Grants can be for design, construction, building, land acquisition, rehabilitation, repair, and other improvements to publicly owned infrastructure including, but not limited to, sewers, utility extensions, streets, roads, curb-cuts, parking, water-treatment systems, telecommunications systems, transit improvements, and pedestrian ways.
