Two Dozen Projects Being Considered In Springfield For First CPA Grants

      Two dozen projects are being considered for funding under the new Community Preservation Act program in Springfield, Massachusetts.

     A voter-approved property tax surcharge has raised $1.3 million for the initial round of CPA funding.

     The state law requires the money be spent on historic preservation, affordable housing, or open space.
