The Provincetown Community Preservation Committee is seeking funding proposals for projects that meet Community Preservation Fund goals. The Deadline for Proposals is Thursday, December 21, 2017 by 4:00 pm for consideration at the April 2018 Town Meeting.
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 $300,000 in total new grants for FY 2019 for ALL categories. This is a guideline and not intended to restrict applications.
To read the Town of Provincetown Community Preservation Plan and Application for Funding, go to the Town's website www.provincetown-ma.gov. Copies of the Plan and application are also available in the Selectmen/Town Manager’s Office, Provincetown Town Hall, 260 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA 02657 or from Housing Specialist Michelle Jarusiewicz. Completed proposals must be submitted to the Town Manager’s office by Thursday, December 21, 2017 by 4:00 pm. For further information, contact Housing Specialist Michelle Jarusiewicz, at 508-487-7087, or
