Local Government Assistance Program

"The Local Government Assistance Project (LGAP) partners with municipalities and state-wide entities like the Office of the State Comptroller to devise strategies for managing their limited resources. LGAP strives to develop an understanding of yearlong financial management, foster sound financial management practices, and introduce long-term fiscal policy perspective. LGAP works with municipalities to identify financial planning alternatives by developing a confidential client relationship and providing services without cost.  The municipality's leadership retains full control of the efforts undertaken, the services provided, the presentation of interim and final results, and the responsibility for all decisions and outcomes. LGAP collaborates with a municipality's leadership to develop financial data and devise multiyear estimates.
