The Wisconsin Comprehensive Planning Grant Program financially assists local governments in the development and adoption of comprehensive plans. The grants are awarded to municipalities, counties, tribes, and regional planning commissions.
No grants were awarded in 2011, 2012, or 2013. No application will be released for 2014 grants, either. It is uncertain if an application will be released (Summer 2014) for 2015 grant funding.

The Department of Administration (DOA) reviews grant-funded comprehensive plans in order to verify that the comprehensive plan meets the terms of the grant agreement. Please note that the DOA review is not a legal review of a community's comprehensive plan and is not a certification of compliance with the Comprehensive Planning Law, s. 66.1001, Wis. Stats. The DOA requests 30 calendar days to review a community's draft comprehensive plan.
