September 7: Deadline for eligibility forms for Fall 2018 Community Preservation Funds

Boston has an estimated $20 million in annual funds to support capital projects in historic preservation, affordable housing, and parks and green spaces. The funds are a result of the 2016 passage of the Community Preservation Act (CPA), which the Alliance worked for years to bring to Boston.  

This summer, City Council awarded the pilot round of Boston Community Preservation funds. The next round of funding is now open and begins with an eligibility and information form. This form must be completed by September 7, 2018.

Please note: Although the Community Preservation Committee expects to focus on affordable housing projects this fall, all categories are welcome to apply. Details and resources are here. If you have additional questions about a historic preservation project, don't hesitate to reach out to our Director of Advocacy, Alison Frazee. In her role as Director of Advocacy, Frazee serves as Co-Chair of the Steering Committee for Yes for a Better Boston and provides technical assistance to the community.

The building at 90 Tyler Street was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2017 and was a pilot round recipient of CPA funds in 2018.
