Municipal Stimulus Program


$500 million. Funding will be distributed on a per capita basis with a $50,000 minimum funding amount for municipalities with smaller populations; summer villages will be allocated a base of $5,000 plus the per capita amount.


The Government of Alberta is providing additional capital infrastructure funding to municipalities and Metis Settlements through the Municipal Stimulus Program to:

  • sustain and create local jobs
  • enhance provincial competitiveness and productivity
  • position communities to participate in future economic growth
  • reduce municipal red tape to promote job-creating private sector investment

Eligible Applicants

For program purposes, an eligible applicant is referred to as a ‘municipality’ and includes any city, town, village, summer village, specialized municipality, municipal district, improvement district, special area, Metis settlement, and the Townsite of Redwood Meadows Administration Society.

Eligible Expenses

Eligible projects

Project eligibility will be similar to the Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI), with modifications to ensure projects meet stimulus program objectives.

Deadline Date

  Ongoing. A local government must commit its entire allocation to projects by October 1, 2020. Any remaining funding may be reallocated to other municipalities.
