DOT Municipal Partnership Initiative (MPI)

By May 21, 2016Funding Sources

The state funding contribution for a project will be capped at $500,000 and generally have a state share of 50% or less. This means the municipality has a higher local match. These projects will not go through the normal planning process. Municipalities request an eligible improvement or an addition to the scope of an existing MaineDOT Project.
Shortly thereafter, the Region Engineer meets with the municipal official to scope out the project.  The scoping, approval, agreement, and development processes will be as lean and simple as possible so that a Cooperative Agreement can be signed within 2 months if all goes well.
