Local Revenue Sharing Board
Announces Spring 2017 Grant Cycle

MARCH 2017 – The Local Revenue Sharing Board of Emmet County, which distributes a portion of electronic gaming revenues from Odawa Casino each year, has announced the grant award cycle for Spring 2017.

Under its compact with the state of Michigan, the casino is required to give 2 percent of net revenues from its electronic gaming operations to the regional community. Funding priorities have been projects to mitigate impacts from the casino, such as public safety and gambling addiction programs. However, grant awards can be made for any variety of projects that impact the Petoskey region as determined by the LRSB; past projects have included recreation and education, for example.

Applications for funding will be accepted through 5 p.m. on May 11, 2017. The original and three copies of the application can be submitted to the County Finance office, 200 Division St. on the lower level in suite G74.

As in prior years, applications must be submitted through a taxing authority, such as Emmet County, a township, village or city. Other organizations wishing to apply for a grant would need to have one of these organizations sponsor its request. The LRSB meets May 25, 2017, to review the applications and make their decisions.

Serving on the LRSB are Emmet County Commissioner Betsy White; Bear Creek Township Supervisor Dennis Keiser; and Resort Township representative Robert Wheaton.
