Requests for funding through the Becket Community Preservation Fund for this coming year are due by Feb. 28.
The fund may be used to support projects in three broad areas: open space/recreation; historic preservation; and affordable housing.
The funding priorities are decided by the town and project funding is voted on during Town Meeting after a public hearing is held in March to discuss the applications received.
