The Old Hill Master Plan has been made possible through funding from both the state and local levels. A large source of funding for this project was provided by the Executive Order 418 program, which is administered by the Inter Agency Working Group (IAWG) composed of the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (EOEA), the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), the Department of Economic Development, and the Executive Office of Transportation and Construction (EOTC). The E418 program provides up t$30,000 dollars in state money for the creation of a community development plan focusing on open spaces and natural resources, transportation, economic development and housing.

In addition to the 418 funding, the City of Springfield, Springfield College and others have each leveraged funding for the project. This funding has been both through in-kind service and through monetary support.
