Mar 10, 2020
The BPDA has extended the application deadline for the Fenway Community Benefits to May 12, 2020.
The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) today announced that up to $100,000 is available in community benefits for the Fenway neighborhood for temporary or permanent beautification projects.
Applicants are required to submit a plan to the BPDA that describes how the proposed project will utilize the funding to produce the greatest measurable impact on the community. Projects must be fully accessible to the public.
Applicants are required to submit a detailed budget and comprehensive plan describing their objectives and goals if they are to receive funding. All awards will be subject to BPDA Board authorization and chosen applicants will be required to enter into a Grant Agreement with the BPDA.
As part of the Fenway Park Demonstration Project in 2013, the Red Sox agreed to contribute $1,000,000 over ten years to be used towards beautification efforts in the Fenway neighborhood.
