Salem CPA Determination of Eligibility Application Available Community Preservation Committee releases FY22 Community Preservation Plan and FY21 Annual Report; FY22 Eligibility Applications Requested for Submission by January 3, 2022
The Community Preservation Committee (CPC) has released its FY22 Community Preservation Plan and FY21 Annual Report. The Community Preservation Plan is used to guide the CPC’s decision-making when reviewing and recommending projects for Community Preservation Act (CPA) funding. It also references several planning documents that have been vetted through public processes and summarizes some of the relevant needs, goals and recommendations of those plans. The plan also serves as an annual report – summarizing the status of funded projects and including copies of the required State reports.
The CPC uses a two-step application process for reviewing funding proposals, beginning with a brief Eligibility Application. This application enables applicants to know if their project is eligible under CPA regulations prior to submitting the more comprehensive Funding Application. Eligibility Applications may be submitted to the CPC at any time. However, in order to be considered for the FY22 funding round, applicants are encouraged to submit their Eligibility Applications no later than January 3, 2022. For projects that are determined eligible, applicants will then be invited to submit a Funding Application. The CPC’s tentative deadline for the receipt of Funding Applications is March 25, 2022. Submitted applications will be reviewed in accordance with the evaluation criteria and the goal of the CPC is to submit funding recommendations to the City Council in May 2022.
