CNA is represented by a board which is elected annually by voting members.

We've won 2 grants

from the National Trust Preservation Funds for the architecture work at St. Augustine's: one for $2.5k and another for $15k!

Thank you!

Cambridgeport's own St. Augustine's African Orthodox Church (137 Allston St.) has been awarded a second $50k matching grant from the Cambridge Historical Commission. The money will be used toward restoration of the siding, windows, and for ADA accessibility. The roof is being redone now.

The CNA is fundraising to help with this historical preservation project in our neighborhood. In addition to the grant, the CHC will match all donations for up to $50k in additional funds
