Copp’s Hill Burying Ground Recommended for Community Preservation Act Funding

Copp’s Hill Burying Ground has been recommended to receive $104,400 as part of the spring pilot program for the City’s Community Preservation Act funding.

This program will fund ready-to-go projects focused on historic preservation, affordable housing, and parks and open space. Copp’s Hill Burying Ground is one of 35 recommended projects, selected by the Community Preservation Committee through an application process earlier this year. Eligible projects needed to be ready to begin construction this fall and require less than $500,000. See the full list of recommended projects below.

Boston City Council is expected to vote on the proposed projects and amounts later this week. A larger funding round will take place in the fall. Read more about the Community Preservation Act here.
