Dec 11, 2020

The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) is now accepting applications for approximately $49,000 of community benefits funding, which was secured through the Article 80 process for 99 Sumner Street in East Boston.

Funding will be prioritized for applicants whose services benefit local residents, with an emphasis on residents of East Boston. To be eligible for this community benefit funding, an applicant must be a non-profit operating in Massachusetts and/or an organization that has identified a local non-profit as its fiscal agent. All awards will be subject to BPDA Board approval.

Following a community process, the BPDA Board approved 99 Sumner Street in 2017. The project is located in East Boston, where the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) is actively engaging in the ongoing PLAN: East Boston planning study. PLAN: East Boston works with the community to produce a framework to predictably shape the future of the neighborhood and identify opportunities to preserve, enhance, and grow. Specifically, the planning initiative will update East Boston Master Plan, produce urban design guidelines, recommend updates to East Boston zoning and advise immediate- to long-term improvement projects for the neighborhood’s transportation network.

Interested and eligible applicants are encouraged to apply by Thursday, January 12, 2021 at 5:00 PM.
