Early Intervention Program

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) was approved by the Commonwealth in 2004 to help municipalities avoid the distressed status of Act 47

The EIP program offers grants to municipalities in order to hire an independent financial consultant to prepare a three-to five-year financial plan and management review.

Plans outline short and long term financial, managerial and economic development strategies that the municipality can consider implementing to possibly strengthen their financial capacity.

The program is administered by the Governor’s Center for Local Government Services in the Department of Community and Economic Development.
