The Expanded Gaming Act created the Community Mitigation Fund (CMF) to support communities and governmental entities in offsetting impact costs related to the construction and operation of gaming facilities.
Since 2015, the MGC has granted approximately $48 million in funding to advance needs in transportation, community planning, workforce development, and public safety initiatives for eligible municipalities and government entities located in the vicinity of the casinos.
The FY 2025 Grant round is now open, and Applications are due to the Commission by January 31, 2024, at 11:59 PM.
