Grants to Deerfield, Massachusetts organizations and individuals to enhance the local community through open spaces, historic preservation, community housing and recreation. Applicants should plan to attend the February 12 information session and are strongly encouraged to discuss eligibility with program staff prior to application.

Categories are as follows:

1) Open Space - CPA funds may be used for the acquisition, creation and preservation of open space. Open space includes land protecting scenic vistas; forested land; land protecting wells; aquifers and recharge areas, and land for active or passive recreation use, including playgrounds, trails, parks, and community gardens.

CPA funds may be used to protect open space by outright purchase, or by extinguishing or limiting development rights through the purchase of permanent conservation or agricultural preservation easements or restrictions.

2) Historical Preservation - CPA funds may be used for the acquisition, preservation, rehabilitation and restoration of “historic resources.” “Historic resources” are defined as a building, structure, vessel or real property that is listed on the state register of historic places or that has been determined by the Local Historical Commission to be significant in the history, archeology, architecture or culture of Deerfield.

CPA funds may be used for the preservation, restoration and rehabilitation of historic resources (including Town-owned historic resources), but not for routine maintenance. Investment in historic resources must be protected by a permanent historic preservation restriction and must provide public benefit.

3) Community Housing - CPA funds may be used for the creation, preservation and support of “community housing” defined as low income (less than 80% of the area-wide median) and moderate income (less than 100% of the area-wide median) housing for individuals and families, including low or moderate income senior housing.

Proposals can be designated for current Deerfield seniors. CPA funds may be used for low interest loan programs to income-eligible first-time home buyers, for financial assistance to income-eligible home-owners; for gap funding for non-profit community development corporations or for-profit developers; to match state or federal low-income housing grants; or for other “support” of community housing.

4) Recreation - Funds may be used for acquisition and capital improvements of lands for recreational use.
