2019-2020 Municipal Capital Works and Cost-Shared Funding Programs

A call for applications for the 2019-20 Municipal Capital Works (MCW) and federal cost-shared infrastructure funding programs is now open. Applications will be used for the 2019-20 MCW program, and the new Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). Additional information on these funding programs is available on the Capital Works Funding page.

When submitting applications that are intended to be considered under ICIP, please ensure to select the applicable ICIP program outcome as a Project Benefit in the MSIS application.

The deadline to submit applications is December 21, 2018.

Apply Online

To administer the application process, the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment uses the Provincial Government's online application system, the Municipal Support Information System (MSIS). This system was developed for submitting applications and project status reports, and can be can accessed by applicants via the link below:

Municipal Support Information System (MSIS)

To gain access to the online application site, users require a USER ID and PASSWORD. Any user who has not obtained a USER ID and PASSWORD is asked to contact the MSIS System Administrator at – MAE-InfoMgmt@gov.nl.ca  or 1-709-729-5498.

All applications should be entered through the MSIS System. New applications must be submitted for any unapproved applications from previous years, or for phases of proposed projects that have not yet been funded/approved, and remain a priority for this call for applications.

New for 2019-20 Programs

  • All applications are now required to complete a Provincial Climate Lens – Pre Approval Application Checklist, which is intended to help ensure that climate change considerations are fully and appropriately integrated into infrastructure projects (see Guidelines and Additional Information below).
  • Certain projects applying for funding under ICIP may also require the completion of Federal Climate Lens Assessments. Additional information and guidance on these requirements is available at: www.mae.gov.nl.ca/capital_works/pdf/Climate_Lens_Assessment_Requirements.pdf
  • The eligibility criteria for non-municipal applicants has been expanded for the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, as outlined at: www.mae.gov.nl.ca/capital_works/pdf/General_Program_Requirements.pdf

Applications should only be submitted for projects that are affordable by the funding recipient as demonstrated by the completion of the Financial Evaluation forms below.

Please note that the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment will not be providing financial assistance for any costs associated with preparing project cost estimates or preparing or submitting applications for funding.
