Cape Cod communities are receiving significant funding to support housing, wastewater, and economic development projects through the Commonwealth's OneStop for Growth grant program.
The Commission is currently conducting a regional broadband assessment, offering municipal digital equity planning, and coordinating with the statewide digital equity plan.
Supported by $200,000 in state funding, the Cape Cod Commission collaborated with Barnstable County and the Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy to conduct a survey-based needs assessment related to early education and childcare for Cape Cod and the Islands.
The project aimed to better understand existing levels of provision and needs in the early education and childcare industries, identify gaps in services, and explore potential strategies for improving the accessibility of services in the region.
