The Community Preservation Committee will hold a public forum on Monday, June 27 at 7 p.m. to discuss the process for applying for grants from Hull’s Community Preservation Act fund.
Grants can be used for historic preservation, open space, recreation, and community housing projects. Applications are now being accepted; they will receive final approval at annual town meeting May 2023, but the CPC board members will begin to review the new applications in early fall of 2022.
The June 27 meeting will be held remotely; visit www.town.hull.ma.us for the access link.
There is a mandatory two-step application process. The first step is to submit a Preliminary CPC Application for project eligibility by Sept. 29. Complete the preliminary application and submit as soon as you know of a worthy project. A CPC member will contact you to confirm that your project falls within the boundaries of eligibility. If your Preliminary CPA Application is eligible, you will proceed to the next step.
The second step, the final application, is due Oct. 31, and consists of a more detailed application. A CPC member will be assigned to your project to assist you.
It is important to note that if a project involves town-owned resources, then you must get permission to submit a CPC application. Please allow enough time to get on the select board agenda. It is also important to meet with the respective board (conservation commission, historical commission, parks and recreation commission, etc.) to gain its support of your project.
