Community Improvement Plan

Applications for the Township's Community Improvement Plan Grant Program are now open!

In 2019, Council adopted the Millbrook Community Improvement Plan (MCIP).  Funded annually, the Plan has successfully supported community development initiatives in Downtown Millbrook over the past four years.

In 2021, Council directed Staff to expand the offerings of the MCIP to provide funding opportunities beyond the Millbrook area.

In 2022, Council adopted the Community Improvement Plan Expansion (CIP-E) which expanded funding opportunities to the balance of the Municipality beyond the downtown Millbrook area. 

The CIP-E considered the opportunities and challenges for urban and rural lands beyond the downtown Millbrook area as well as identified additional funding programs to serve these areas and the Township as a whole.  The MCIP and the CIP-E are intended to be applied in tandem in order to work together to support economic growth and community development across the Township.
