Our state invests in its cities
- Every city in Minnesota receives Local Government Aid (LGA) from the state.
- It 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. This year, that amounts to $68.8 million.
- Here's how we distribute it in the budget.
- $68.1 million — General Fund
- $ 9.2 million — Minneapolis Park Board
- $ 0.2 million — Municipal Building Commission (MBC)
