What We Do

We review applications submitted by City bodies and citizens at large for funding projects involving the acquisition of open space, recreation, preservation of historic resources, and the support of low and moderate income housing, and makes recommendations regarding the use of the City’s Community Preservation Fund for those purposes. That fund is composed of a 1.5% surtax on City real estate taxes and state matching grants payable each Fall based on the surtax revenues for the fiscal year ending the prior June 30th, and interest on the accumulated funds.
