    Maine Department of Education


    The Department of Economic and Community Development is seeking proposals to provide Efficient Delivery of Local and Regional Services. Maine State Governments Fund for the Efficient Delivery of Local and Regional Services was established in 2005 to encourage intergovernmental cooperation on projects that will result in cost-savings, and ultimately a reduction in property taxes. In support of this, the Fund provides monetary assistance to municipalities, counties and state agencies that work together for this purpose.

    Grants will be awarded for qualifying projects that are designed to achieve significant and sustainable savings in the cost of delivering local and regional government services, and that ultimately reduce the demand for property tax revenues. Savings must be achieved through collaborative approaches to service delivery, enhanced regional delivery systems, consolidated administrative services, broad-based purchasing alliances and inter-local agreements. Grants will not be awarded on proposals that serve a single entity; collaboration with other eligible government entities is required.


    History of Funding

    None is available.
