All Saskatchewan municipalities are eligible for MEEP. To participate in the program, municipalities will need to submit the following:

  • a signed funding agreement
  • a project plan (Schedule B) identifying which project or projects will be funded
  • a council resolution supporting the projects

A Guide to Completing the Schedule B Project Plan has been prepared to assist municipalities in completing the required forms to apply for funding.

Project plans will be reviewed for eligibility by the Ministry of Government Relations. Approval will be provided by the ministry by letter, along with the signed funding agreement.

If priorities change in your municipality, complete the Schedule B Project Plan Amendment form, sign and return to Municipal Infrastructure and Finance for approval.

MEEP funding can't be used by municipalities to pay down debt, purchase land, lease property or finance administration costs.
