The Provincetown Community Preservation Committee is seeking funding proposals for projects that meet Community Preservation Fund goals. The Deadline for Proposals was Thursday, December 15, 2016 by 4:00 pm for consideration at the April 2017 Town Meeting. Note that the CPC may consider applications off-cycle but that Town Meeting approval is required for all awards.
The CPA mandates that each fiscal year Provincetown must spend, or set aside for later spending, at least 10% of the annual revenues in the Town of Provincetown Community Preservation Fund for each of the three CPA target areas: community housing, open space/recreation, and historic preservation. As revised in April 2014, the Town of Provincetown has adopted a bylaw that further directs that 60% of CPA funds target community housing with 10% for historic preservation and 10% for open space/recreation with the remaining 20% of CPA funds be undesignated and available for any category including administration. Given the projected debt service for already approved projects, that debt service must be deducted from receipts first, and that we anticipate limited state matching funds, the Community Preservation Committee anticipates granting a maximum of approximately $500,000 in total new grants for FY 2018 for ALL categories.
