OPM: Local Capital Improvement Program (LoCIP)


{Local Capital Improvement Program}

Program Description

The Local Capital Improvement Program (LoCIP) distributes funds to municipalities to reimburse the cost of eligible local capital improvement projects such as road, bridge or public building construction activities. A municipality can request LoCIP funds by completing a simple application form for project approval and project reimbursement that gives a general description of the project, its work location, and the actual cost of the project. Each year, the State Office of Policy and Management provides a formula based entitlement to each municipality's available LoCIP balance. These funds can accumulate from year to year. LoCIP program Guidelines and program Guidelines Cover Memo are available.
