When Royalston adopted the Community Preservation Act in 2008, residents accepted a surcharge on their real estate taxes. This money, bolstered by state matching funds, goes into a fund dedicated to open space, recreation, affordable housing, and historic preservation. The committee evaluates proposals submitted for funding and makes recommendations to town meeting.
