From time to time M-NCPPC is able to generate non-County government funded support for projects with the expectation that the project will be implemented in a timely way as a condition of the support. This project provides the authorization to receive and expend the funds from various sources. In addition, there is often a requirement or need for the Commission to provide matching funds, fund the overhead for the project, e.g. planning, design, and construction management or supervision services, or otherwise contribute to the project. This PDF provides public funding for this limited participation.


Expenditures will continue indefinitely.
