The Minnesota Department of Revenue has posted the certified 2021 Local Government Aid (LGA) for cities. The total LGA distributed in 2021 will be $564,398,012, a $4 million increase from the 2020 distribution. This increase is a result of a significant push by local government groups, particularly the CGMC, to increase the LGA allocation. The certified figure is the exact distribution amount that cities will receive in two payments in 2021 — on July 20, 2021 and Dec. 26, 2021.
