Please email comments to mgccomments@state.ma.us with ‘2020 Community Mitigation Fund applications’ in the subject line. The Commission will review any comments received before making a determination on each application. Awards are expected to be decided by the Commission by June 30, 2020.

About the 2020 Community Mitigation Fund

The Massachusetts Legislature legalized casino gaming to produce broad-based economic development, including jobs and revenue.  To date, gaming tax revenue has exceeded $500 million, and the industry has created more than 12,000 construction jobs and thousands of operational jobs.  The Legislature also established an equally important mandate to mitigate unintended impacts associated with the arrival of casino gaming.  To that end, the law created the Community Mitigation Fund to support communities and governmental entities in offsetting costs related to the construction and operation of gaming facilities.

Since 2015, the MGC has issued approximately $16 million in funding to advance needs in transportation, non-transportation planning, workforce development and public safety for municipalities and government entities located in the vicinity of the casinos.
