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 $38 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.

Currently, the CMF offers grants in:

  • Transportation Planning
  • Transportation Construction
  • Workforce Development
  • Community Planning
  • Public Safety
  • “Specific Impacts” relating to the operation of a gaming establishment

Applications will open in November for the 2023 grant round and be due January 31, 2023.

Further detail on this year’s program may be found in the Guidelines or by contacting Mary.Thurlow@massgaming.gov or 617-979-8420.
