Community Preservation Fund

How can I apply for a grant to develop affordable housing or for historic preservation, land conservation or parks? What past projects has Newton funded in these categories?

Newton's Community Preservation Program provides grants to develop affordable housing, preserve historic resources or conservation land, and to create and improve City parks. A 9-member volunteer Community Preservation Committee evaluates proposals and recommends funding to the Board of Aldermen, who may then appropriate the requested funds.
