Fund That Project
The Eastham Community Preservation Committee is accepting applications until Nov. 2 for projects related to open space, historic preservation, recreation, and affordable housing.
Have you enjoyed the tennis courts at the Nauset Regional High School or played on the playground at Wiley Park? Have you toured the refurbished Nauset Light or know someone who found a place to live at the Village at Nauset Green? These projects all benefitted from Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds.
The money is raised through a 3-percent surcharge on property tax bills, with a state match that varies year to year, according to Mary Shaw, chair of the committee.
The nine CPA committee members evaluate proposals submitted by individuals, town boards, committees, and community groups. The committee recommends project funding amounts, which must then be approved by town meeting voters.
Other projects aided by CPA grants include Mobi-Mats at public beaches, Eastham Windmill repairs, and grants to Habitat for Humanity and the Eastham Affordable Housing Trust. The money has also gone to preserve open space and protect the diamondback terrapin habitat, according to the town website.
The committee is soliciting grant applications for fiscal year 2024 (July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024). Application forms can be found on the town of Eastham website, eastham-ma.gov. —K.C. Myers
