Share, email, print, bookmark SOURCE reports.

FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Community Preservation Committee announced today, August 8 that the Committee is now accepting CPA Project Eligibility Applications.

The applications are available on the Framingham Community Preservation Committee website and
in the Planning and Community Economic Development Department in the Memorial Building at 150 Concord Street.

The application form is only available in English at this time. The Committee is still working on a Spanish & Portuguese form.

Framingham adopted the Massachusetts Community Preservation Act (CPA) in November 2020
by voter referendum. In adopting the Act, voters agreed that property owners would pay a 1%
annual surcharge on local property taxes that can be used solely for City quality-of-life projects,
as defined by the Act. Adoption of the Act also made Framingham eligible to receive matching funds
from a state CPA Trust Fund.

It is estimated that the Committee will have about $2 million in the account when it comes time to award grants for projects.

This Eligibility Form has been prepared to determine if a potential project qualifies under the guidelines established by the Community Preservation Act. Projects eligible for funding revenues include: open space, historic preservation, outdoor recreation, and community housing.

The City’s goal is that residents, throughout the City, benefit from these projects, said the Committee in a press release.

If a project is deemed eligible, then applicants will be invited to submit a full application.

The full application form should be available on or about September 1, 2022.
