Charlestown Neighborhood Council
The Charlestown Neighborhood Council (CNC) is the officially elected representative body of the Charlestown neighborhood of the City of Boston, MA. It was founded in 1986. The CNC is responsible for facilitating dialogue within the Charlestown community and between the residents of Charlestown and the City of Boston, State and Local agencies and businesses on topics including:

  • Basic Services (Utilties, Parking, Trash Removal, Noise, Public Spaces) 
             Bill Galvin, Committee Chair Amanda Reinfeld, Co-Chair

The Neighborhood Council is composed of 21 community members, including seven elected precinct representatives, seven elected at-large representatives and seven appointed non-profit community organization representatives. 

This is the fourth year of funding from the Spaulding-CNC Community Partnership Fund. All Charlestown non-profit organizations are invited to submit a grant to request funding for projects not to exceed $5,000.

We are pleased to report that representatives from eleven non-profit organizations attended the first tutorial necessary to apply for a 2019 Spaulding-CNC grant on Monday evening December 17, 2018 at the American Legion Hall in Charlestown. For those of you unable to attend there will be another tutorial on Wednesday evening January 9, 2019 at 7:00 pm at the American Legion Hall, 23 Adams Street in Charlestown. Please join us at that time if your organization intends to apply for a grant as attendance at one tutorial is a requirement for application.

After you have attended a tutorial the next step is submission of an application.  Directions and forms are available on the Community Fund page of this website. Your application may be submitted electronically or as a hard copy and must be submitted by Friday January 18, 2019 by 5:00 pm to Rebecca Kaiser at or to the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital 300 First Avenue.
