The Leadership ICMA Legacy Fund helps individuals to complete the ICMA Leadership Program who otherwise would not be able to because of being in transition, economic constraints or other mitigating factors.


  • An individual terminated from their current position and currently in the process of securing new employment.
  • The jurisdiction the individual works for has cut funding for travel and/or employee development programs.
  • The individual is paying a portion or all costs associated with the program themselves and is currently experiencing economic hardship which makes it impossible for them to continue this expense.
  • Has completed the three day orientation process for Leadership ICMA.
  • Has the ability to pay up to 50% of the costs associated with Leadership ICMA.
