HOPKINTON â€” The town council reviewed and revised its rankings of 13 nonprofit organizations that are part of Hopkintonâ€™s application for Community Development Block Grants (CDBG). This year the town applied for $249,248 and was eligible for up to $250,000.
Hopkinton Town Planner Jim Lamphere said the organizations on the list were required to have a town sponsor in order to qualify for CDBG money and that Hopkinton included them because the town benefitted from their services.
â€śThese organizations have to apply through a town. Theyâ€™re sub-recipients â€“ theyâ€™re not eligible to apply directly,â€ť he said. â€śTheyâ€™re going through Hopkinton because they provide services to the Washington County area.â€ť
â€śOutside agencies apply through multiple towns in Washington County and they get a little bit through each town but things are very competitive out there,â€ť he said.
