Deadline for CPC Grants
The deadline to apply for funding from the Community Preservation Committee is Wednesday, Nov. 1. The CPC awards Community Preservation Act funding to projects falling into four categories: community housing, historic preservation, open space, and outdoor recreation.
At town meeting last April, an article passed setting a 60-percent floor on the proportion of CPA funds that would fall in the housing category.
“Any town committee, group of ten taxpayers, nonprofit or for-profit organizations” can apply for grants from the CPC, according to the town website. The application form is available online on the CPC’s webpage.
The application for “mini grants,” which fund projects with budgets up to $20,000, are also available online. The same groups are eligible to apply. The goals of the mini grants include “encouraging creative ideas, pilot projects, studies to inform future work” and “providing opportunities to experiment with projects that could be taken to bigger scale,” according to the application.
