AMO administers the Fund to 443 municipalities in Ontario.

Canadian municipalities receive over $2 billion from the federal Gas Tax Fund each year; Ontario's share is over $800 million. Funds are distributed to communities across the province on a per-capita basis.

Since its launch in 2005, municipalities receiving federal Gas Tax funds through AMO have invested nearly $6.2 billion from the Fund into about 8,800 local projects. Funds can be invested across 17 project categories to promote economic growth, strengthen communities, and improve the environment.
