Brief Job Description (essential functions of the job):
The Community Preservation Program will raise about $20 million for Boston to spend annually on affordable housing, parks and open space, and historic preservation. This new fund was made possible originally with the passage of a state law in 2000 allowing cities and towns across the Commonwealth to bring a local ballot to voters and establish the Community Preservation Act (CPA). In November 2016, Boston voters overwhelmingly passed the CPA. As a result, property owners pay a surcharge on their quarterly real estate tax bill that funds the CPA in Boston. A small match from the state adds to the City’s fund. Allocations and operation of the CPA is guided by state law and city ordinance.
Aligning with the City and its many connected agencies, departments, and planning documents, CPA funds will contribute to the goal of making Boston the most livable city in the nation by working with communities to build strong neighborhoods through the strategic investment of these new public resources. Equity, meeting the needs of underserved communities, and access will drive decision-making for CPA projects.
Reporting to the Community Preservation Director, the CPA Neighborhood Outreach Manager will work as part of a small team to implement all aspects of this new initiative.
Specific job responsibilities include:
Must be able to work a flexible work schedule to attend meetings and events on evenings and weekends as needed in support of position’s responsibilities.
