The Commission’s revenue comes from three sources: a property assessment; federal, state, and private grants; and fees. The property assessment is entirely independent from a town’s tax levy. The Commission’s revenue is deposited into the Cape Cod Environmental Protection Fund (CCEPF), authorized under the Cape Cod Commission Act. Funds in the CCEPF may be used only for the Commission’s approved budget, which is reviewed by the Barnstable County Commissioners and the Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates, and are maintained by the Barnstable County Treasurer.
