PSD offers two main grant services to municipalities and other public sector organizations: grant writing and grant notification. PSD’s team of policy analysts and grant writers assist municipalities, Indigenous organizations and other government agencies with writing and reviewing grant applications. The Municipal Grant Inventory Service (MGIS) helps your municipality stay on top of grant opportunities and pressing deadlines through weekly customized notifications.

GRANT NOTIFICATION | Municipal Grant Inventory Service (MGIS)
The Municipal Grant Inventory Service (MGIS) is a tailored service to help assist your organization with your grant application search, helping you stay on top of grant opportunities and pressing deadlines. This service includes:
Weekly customized emails notifying subscribers of newly available grants
Access to PSD’s Grant Hotline – contact our grant team with questions about grant opportunities

Contact Public Sector Digest today if your organization is interested in signing up for the Municipal Grant Inventory Service.
Current members of the MGIS are reporting that not only does the service allow their municipality to stay on top of emerging grant funding opportunities, but it is assisting with the coordination of grant application completion across multiple departments.
Especially in small to mid-sized municipal organizations, the capacity to respond to complex grant applications within strict deadlines is a significant challenge. With whole cross-departmental teams receiving weekly MGIS notifications and accessing our web-based grant inventory, members are reporting greater coordination in their approach to grant application writing.
