The CPA funding process
CPA funds will be awarded through a grant application process. The Community Preservation Committee has developed an application packet, which includes:
An explanation of the application and review process
- The FY18 Project Eligibility Determination Form, which must be submitted to and reviewed by the Community Preservation Committee (CPC) before an applicant can submit a full application
- Instructions for submitting a full application for FY18 funding
- Application Cover Sheet
- Scoring criteria
In FY2018, the Community Preservation Committee will make two rounds of funding recommendations to the City Council. The first round will occur in May 2018, followed by a second round in October 2018. All applicants who will seek funding in FY2018 are encouraged to submit a project eligibility determination in January 2018, even if they will wait until the second round to complete their full application. Applicants may also submit a revised application for the second round if they do not receive funding the first round.
