|The deadline for requesting time on or submitting materials for this agenda is 11 April 2014. |
|For all current proposals, public hearings have now been held, and the deadline for submitting written comments has now passed. |
|Further written comments can be forwarded to the Community Preservation Committee only if received by the pre-meeting submission deadline for each proposal working session. These deadlines are listed in the Committee's online Calendar. |
Upcoming Funding Deadlines
These deadlines apply to projects that met the 1 February 2014 deadline for requesting the required in-person orientation meeting with staff:
|1 March 2014 || ||for email receipt of pre-proposals (prerequisite for consideration of full proposals) |
|1 October 2014 || ||for receipt of full proposals the CPC agrees to consider based on its pre-proposal discussions |
|Other projects are encouraged to request an orientation meeting and to submit pre-proposals for discussion with the CPC as soon as possible. Early pre-proposals help the Committee to consider reserving funds for allocation in future funding rounds. |
New Help with Non-CPA Matching Funds
|The CPC's Funding Guidelines discourage relying exclusively on CPA funds to cover all project costs. As a member of the Foundation Center's Funding Information Network (FIN), the Newton Free Library can assist with research on sources of matching, non-CPA funds. |
