Over two dozen Charlestown non-profit organizations will share in a new round of Central Artery mitigation money.

The Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) approved last week the distribution of $100,000 from the Charlestown mitigation fund. The fund was established to address the social impacts of development occurring on Central Artery North Area (CANA) parcels. The CANA parcels were created during the reconstruction of the Central Artery, and developers of these parcels were required to donate $925,000 to the mitigation fund. The Charlestown Neighborhood Council Mitigation Committee conducts an annual public process for nonprofits that serve the Charlestown community to apply for this funding. The nonprofits submit an application and make a presentation regarding their programs and the proposed use of the fund. The Charlestown Neighborhood Council then makes recommendations to the BRA requesting disbursements from the fund. This $100,000 will be the twelfth authorization for disbursement from the fund, and will be distributed as follows:
