Regional Performance Incentive Program
The Regional Performance Incentive Program was established in 2007 to encourage municipalities to participate in voluntary intermunicipal or regional shared services projects that have the potential to produce measurable “economies of scale”, provide desired or required public services, and lower the costs and tax burdens associated with the provision of such services. Eligible applicants currently include any regional council of governments (COG), any two or more municipalities acting through a COG, any economic development district (EDD), any regional educational service center (RESC), or any combination thereof.
Funding for RPIP is provided under CGS Section 4-66k using a portion of hotel and car rental taxes. Due to COVID-related declines in anticipated tax revenues, the 2020 grant round was cancelled and OPM will determine the timing of the next grant round when appropriate.
