Fy21 Applications


The Community Preservation Committee received twenty-five applications seeking funding for CPA eligible projects in the City.  The applications are available here for the public’s review. Some files are large and may take a moment to load.

The public was invited to a series of virtual public meetings in January 2021. Applicants presented their projects to the CPC.  The CPC reviewed each application and determined the FY21 CPA Funding Recommendations. These recommendations were submitted to the City Council for their consideration.  All recommendations were approved by the City Council on April 8, 2021.

For more information, please email CPA@newbedford-ma.gov or call the CPA Coordinator at 508.979.1488.
