In the 2014 provincial budget, the Government of Alberta replaced the Regional Collaboration Program (RCP) with the Alberta Community Partnership (ACP). The ACP was approved for a total program budget of $48.8 million in 2014-15.  This year starts the shift in funding from the MSI operating grant to the ACP over the next three years.

In addition to the enhancement of the former Regional Collaboration component of the RCP, new funding opportunities have been created under the ACP, including the:

  • Intermunicipal Collaboration component which provides support to collaborations of two or more municipalities working strategically on new or enhanced regional municipal service delivery; and
  • Metropolitan Funding component which is targeted for large municipalities with populations over 55,000 and will provide an annual allocation to the Capital Region Board and the Calgary Regional Partnership; and
  • Viability Review Support component which is divided into three streams,  including viability review studies, transitional costs associated with restructuring and infrastructure/debt servicing for the receiving municipality.

Information regarding the ACP, including eligibility details, grant program guidelines and application information is available online at:

The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) is hosting a webinar on the new ACP program on July 17 from 1:30 – 2:30 pm and AAMDC members have been invited to attend. To register for this webinar, please email Maureen Ford at mford@auma.ca
