What is LGA?
Every city in Minnesota receives Local Government Aid (LGA) from the state. LGA is an annual investment intended to pay for essential services and reduce property taxes.
As the state's largest city, we receive the largest distribution of LGA funds. In 2023, that amounts to $74,542,064.
$65.5 million of that goes to the City's General Fund. The rest supports the Minneapolis Park Board and the Municipal Building Commission.
