More than 1,100 CPA projects were funded in FY19, and the work being done by CPA communities across the state continues to impress and inspire. The cumulative statistics on the statewide program clearly demonstrate the incredible impact of CPA:
- 30,894 acres of open space have been preserved
- More than 6,800 affordable housing units have been created with an additional 10,700 units supported
- Over 5,500 appropriations have been made for historic preservation projects
- Over 2,500 outdoor recreation projects have been initiated
The positive results of CPA in 176 communities (and the fact that none have chosen to leave the program) show that Burlington should be sharing in the benefits of CPA.
