BOSTON COLLEGE NEIGHBORHOOD IMPROVEMENT FUND 2015 SPRING CYCLE-APPLICATION DEADLINE JUNE 15, 2015
As part of a package of public benefits related to its Institutional Master Plan, Boston College will provide $2,564,000 to projects that enhance the public realm and for which public sources of financing may be unavailable or inadequate.
This Neighborhood Improvement Fund may be used by public or private non-profit entities to implement improvements on public property. Projects may include improvements in public parks and open space, neighborhood beautification, transportation and roadway improvements, public safety projects, public art, and other projects that achieve the objectives of the Fund.
Projects should be of broad public benefit to the Allston-Brighton neighborhood, with particular emphasis on the areas of Brighton closest to Boston College (e.g. Lake Street, Foster Street, Cleveland Circle, Commonwealth Avenue, Brighton Center). Applicants will be expected to garner and demonstrate broad community support for their projects as part of the application and review process.
