The Local Government Efficiency (LGE) Grant program can assist local leaders with identifying best practices and implementing actions to reduce municipal expenses and increase efficiencies in local service delivery. For the 2012-2013 program year, the State Budget appropriated up to $4 million for direct assistance to local governments for the LGE Grant program.
Under the program, local governments can apply for grants to help cover costs associated with projects, including but not limited to, planning and implementing structural reorganization, functional or service delivery consolidation, city or county charter revisions that include functional consolidation, cooperative service arrangements, and developing a mechanism to implement regionalized service delivery. For this request for applications (RFA), the Department of the State has allocated $400,000 to develop implementation plans and $3,600,000 for implementation projects.
