The Cape Cod Commission is seeking comments and input from the public to support development of the 2024 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). An online survey is now open.
To kick off the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) development process, a series of Listening Sessions have been scheduled to gather early public input. Each Listening Session will include a presentation and time for questions and comments. The RTP sets the long-range vision for the transportation system on Cape Cod in 2050. It is the primary means for the allocation of federal and state funds for the Cape's transportation needs.
The Cape Cod Commission will host a series of virtual public meetings in the coming weeks in the towns of Barnstable, Bourne, Brewster, Eastham, Truro, and Wellfleet to present conceptual design alternatives created by the Woods Hole Group to address vulnerable low-lying roadway segments, bridges, and culverts.
The Cape Cod Commission is receiving $240,000 in federal grant funding to support the Cape Cod Regional Safety Action Plan through the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Grant Program, an initiative designed to improve roads and address traffic fatalities nationwide.
The Cape Cod Commission is pleased to invite Cape and Islands students in grades 9-12 to apply for the Climate Ambassador Program. The Program is an initiative to educate, engage and empower young people on Cape Cod to work together to combat the impacts of climate change.

The towns of Chatham, Harwich, Falmouth, Mashpee, and Provincetown will share a $205,479 action grant awarded through the Massachusetts Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Program to assess low-lying roads in each community and develop solutions. This funding is part of $32.8 million in MVP Program grants awarded to Massachusetts cities and towns in late August through the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
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.
