|Economic Vitality Incentive Program|
In 2011, the State of Michigan introduced the Economic Vitality Incentive Program (EVIP) through Public Act 63. This Act requires that cities, villages and townships that receive a certain level of state revenue sharing meet three categories of requirements. The categories are: Accountability and Transparency, Consolidation of Services, and Employee Compensation. Municipalities that meet the requirements of these categories will receive approximately 66% of the funding they received last fiscal year. Non-compliance will result in a further reduction of that funding.
The City of Chelsea submits all information required to qualify for this funding and anticipates continued receipt of the full 66% share. You can view the City's submission data via the links to the left. Details regarding the EVIP program and Public Act 63 of 2011 can be found on the State of Michigan website.
