BOSTON–The Harvard Allston Public Realm Flexible Fund (HAPRFF) has launched another grant cycle, with applications due May 10.
The purpose of the HAPRFF is to support projects that enhance the public realm and for which public sources of financing may be unavailable or inadequate. Projects may include improvements in public parks and open space, neighborhood beautification, streetscape improvements (including street furniture such as benches or bike racks), and public safety projects.
Projects should be of broad public benefit to the Allston-Brighton neighborhood, with particular emphasis on the North Allston/North Brighton area located north of I-90. Applicants will be expected to garner and demonstrate community support for their projects as part of the application and review process. [more]
