Housing Rehabilitation Program

We are committed to preserving existing houses and affordable rentals for year-round living.

Our Impact


Homes Rehabilitated and Preserved


Spent with Local Contractors


Our Housing Rehabilitation Program is available to income-qualified residents in Eastham, Truro, and Provincetown. Effective May 1, 2021, qualified residents can receive up to $50,000 per household to pay for critical home repairs (like roofing and siding, electrical, heating, and plumbing work), lead paint abatement, and energy efficiency upgrades to keep their properties in good condition for the long term. And with local contractors doing the work, this means money flowing back into our economy.

The program is designed to preserve existing homes for year-round residents at or below 80% of the median area income.

Find out more about the program by clicking through and reading the program overview and program guidelines pages listed below.

The CDP is pleased to offer the Housing Rehabilitation Program in partnership with the Town of Truro using Community Development Block Grant funds provided by the MA Department of Housing and Community Development.


Announcing the new Lower Cape Housing & ADU Resource Center!

The Community Development Partnership (CDP) and the Homeless Prevention Council (HPC) are both deeply rooted in the Lower and Outer Cape. In their long history of working to support the needs of the Lower and Outer Cape, they have recently joined forces to provide services to residents who live in housing owned or managed by the CDP. This partnership has resulted in an emphasis on housing preservation and has provided opportunities to ensure local residents have access to the support needed to maintain their housing. As our two organizations collaborate around common themes of concern for Low to Moderate income residents in our eight towns (Brewster, Chatham, Eastham, Harwich, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet), the most important issue encountered has been the extreme shortage of year-round housing.
