Government of New Brunswick

Administrative Agreement on the Federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF)

Incorporated Areas:

As required by the Administrative Agreement on the Federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) (effective April 1st, 2014), each eligible municipality, regional municipality and rural community must submit a five-year Capital Investment Plan (CIP) to the Department of Environment and Local Government. The plan must identify the specific projects to be undertaken, including one to develop a Capital Asset Management Plan (CAMP), as a result of receiving the gas tax funding.

Allocations are determined based on population. Each area will begin receiving payment once its Capital Investment Plan has been evaluated and accepted by the Province, and an agreement contract has been signed with the Department of Environment and Local Government. Eligible recipient payments are transferred twice a year over a five-year period, ending with a final installment in the year 2018 for the 2014-2018 period.  View funding allocations chart.

Unincorporated / Local Service District Areas:

In unincorporated areas, the Province is responsible for the distribution of investments. Regions will be identified that encompass the unincorporated areas and funds will be distributed within those boundaries based on regional needs and priorities.
