CPA State Match Funding

Whately receives $70,679 in CPA state match funding

The state has announced its match for local FY 2017 CPA revenues and Whately was awarded $70,679 for an 87% match. 
Only 6 other towns statewide received more than an 85% match.  The match percentage for those towns with less than
a 3% surcharge was only 17.2% and the average for all communities only 25%. 
Our CPA dollars leverage a lot of additional outside money, above and beyond the state match. 
Since the CPA started here in FY2010, Whately has received about $2.5 million in state APR funding,
state grants and private donations in addition to $318,000 in state CPA matches.
