About Us

GSG Municipal group specializes in delivering products and consulting services to municipalities and governments. GSG Municipal Group’s focus is on comparative financial data for greater decision-making insight. We do this primarily through our MIRG data base service that provides real time access to data from around the country. This is the only nationwide database of this type in the United States. Additionally, we provide consulting to create custom reports and studies on specific data points that are beyond the scope of MIRG. Some key benefits of our services are:

  • Compare municipal economic data per capita or directly
  • Grant writing data at your fingertips
