Lt. Governor Timothy Murray at the 4th Annual Regionalization Conference in Worcester announced yesterday (Sept. 10) that the process of submitting applications for $4 million in Community Innovation Challenge grants will begin tomorrow with publication of the guidelines and application. "As a Commonwealth, it is in our shared interest to provide communities with tools and resources to implement or improve regional services," he said. "Governor Patrick and I are committed to working with cities and towns as well as our partners in the state legislature to increase local cooperation and make government at all levels more efficient and effective in the delivery of municipal services for our residents." During the first round of CIC grants awarded in 2012, some $4 million was awarded to 27 programs. The guidelines and application for FY13 CIC grants will be published in the website of the Executive Office for Administration and Finance on September 12.
