“With the new round of application for CPA funding available now, we want to make sure that our neighbors have the information and resources to take full advantage of this opportunity to fund relevant projects,” said Councilor Flynn. “I’m delighted to partner with the city to host this meeting so that residents can learn more about what CPA can do for our community.”
“When I worked to get the CPA adopted in Boston, it was because I knew the transformative effects the funds from the program would have across the city,” said Councilor Flaherty. ” I want to make sure residents in our city have every opportunity to harness the impact of these funds, and I encourage folks to come and learn more about the CPA application process, and get their applications in.”
