The Town of Cumberland is offering $5,000 grants to small businesses adversely affected by COVID-19. The grant program has been updated to include businesses with one owner/employee only, that received EIDL and/or PPP funds, or that opened in 2019.

The Monastery Playground is now open to the public. We are proud of the work that our team has put in to make this new playground a reality, including Meghan O’Brien from O’Brien and Sons who has been such a resource, those who helped design the playground, the volunteers, and of course, we owe massive gratitude to our Highway Department who has worked so hard to bring this playground to life.
The town wishes to accommodate the needs of youth organizations that sponsor sports activities for our young people. That said, our goal must also be to keep sports participants safe by ensuring that all organizations comply with Phase II: Youth Sport Guidelines, as found on the reopeningri.com webpage. Please click on the link here for specific guidelines regarding social distancing, personal hygiene, and equipment care requirements.
The town will grant permission to use a field, once the requesting organizations:
- Provide the town with evidence of General Liability Insurance naming the town as an “Additional Insured” for the use of the town-owned property.
- Provide in written form on the organization’s letterhead and signed by an authorized signer assurance that the organization will adhere to Phase II: Youth Sport Guidelines as outlined on the reopeningri.com website.
Town officials will be monitoring compliance with Phase II Youth Sport Guidelines through spot inspections during field usage. Field use privileges will be revoked if the organization fails to adhere to Phase II Guidelines. The town will restore field use privileges once corrective action to maintain compliance has been implemented.
Organizations wishing to reserve field time should direct their requests to Cumberland Parks & Recreation Director Michael Crawley @ Mcrawley@cumberlandri.org or by phone @ 401-651-4404.
