LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Officials say Michigan municipalities experiencing financial struggles can apply for a $5 million grant program that can help fund special projects.

Applications are available for the Financially Distressed Cities, Villages, and Townships grant program. They’re due Oct. 15. Cities, villages and townships experiencing at least one condition of “probable financial distress” as outlined by state law are eligible to apply.

Gov. Rick Snyder says in a statement Wednesday the program “frees up valuable tax dollars for other critical services that benefit residents and taxpayers in those communities.”

Grant funding may be used to pay for specific projects, services or strategies that move a city, village or township toward financial stability.
