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
  • Gaming Harm Reduction
  • “Specific Impacts” relating to the operation of a gaming establishment
