The CPA provides town funding for projects in four categories: historic preservation, affordable housing, open space preservation and outdoor recreation.
Applicants must successfully complete two application steps in order to be considered for funding at the 2020 Annual Town Meeting. After reviewing the Step 1 applications, the Community Preservation Committee (CPC) will invite the eligible applicants to submit Step 2 of the Application. Only projects that complete Step 1, and are invited by the CPC, may submit Step 2.
Step 1 applications will be accepted not later than Friday, Oct. 4, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. The CPC will meet on Oct. 8 to review applications and to invite eligible projects to complete Step 2 submissions.
Step 2 applications must be received not later than Friday, Nov. 1, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. The Committee will meet on Nov. 12 to begin review of Step 2 submittals.
Applicants may contact the Great Barrington Town Planner for more information, by emailing email@example.com.
