Fy24 Applications


The Community Preservation Committee received twenty-two applications seeking FY24 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 2024 at which the applicants presented their projects to the CPC. The public was invited to provide comment by January 26, 2024.

After the January presentations, the CPC reviewed each application and submitted their FY24 funding recommendations to City Council for their consideration.

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