Second Deadline to Qualify for Next One-Third of EVIP Funding
The deadline is January 1, 2012 for cities to comply with the Economic Vitality & Incentive Program (EVIP) second requirement to qualify for the next one-third of the funding. This step requires communities to submit a plan to the State Department of Treasury of one or more proposals to increase existing levels of cooperation, collaboration, and consolidation within their jurisdiction or with other jurisdictions.
Join the League and State Department of Treasury for live online help about your next steps and how to proceed. The program will begin with a brief presentation on the basics of navigating the forms and materials needed for a proposal, followed by live Q & A with League staff and a representative from the State Department of Treasury.
