State ‘efficiency’ grants to promote shared services and school consolidations

Gov. Phil Murphy announced recently that he is allocating $10 million to assist municipalities in promoting and supporting local shared services and school consolidation studies.

The Local Efficiency Achievement Program (LEAP) will be housed in the state Department of Community Affairs’ Division of Local Government Services.

“As we lead our state towards the stronger and fairer economy that we hope to build together, it is our Administration’s responsibility to provide these communities a platform from which to pursue efficient growth, achieve smart government, and provide relief to local taxpayers,” Murphy said.
