How does CEIP handle deposits and milestone payments? 

Not all municipalities’ programs will advance CEIP funds for deposits or milestone payments. If CEIP funds are not advanced, the property owner will need to pay the deposit or milestone payments out-of-pocket; however, the property owner may request to finance the deposit or milestone payments paid out-of-pocket. If requested prior to project completion, deposit and milestone payment costs will be reimbursed once the project is complete and verified. For more information, review the municipality’s Program Terms and Conditions found on each municipality’s CEIP webpage at
