CPA Committee Members and Staff

The CPAC receives project requests, evaluates community needs in the areas for which CPA funding can be used, and makes recommendations to the City Council for the use of CPA funds. CPA funds cannot be appropriated or spent without the recommendation of the CPAC and subsequent approval by the City Council. In the process of determining how CPA funds are to be used, the CPAC consults with various committees that are knowledgeable about each of the community preservation program areas, and holds public hearings to gathers input from Holyoke residents.
