Wareham, Carver Receive Money in Community Compact Grant Distribution

WAREHAM – The Baker Administration has awarded over $850,000 to 38 municipalities and 8 school districts in Massachusetts to explore regionalization and efficiency initiatives.

The funding is supported by the Community Compact Cabinet, a new state initiative aimed at improving collaboration between local and state government. This is the second grant distribution under the program. More than $1 million was awarded to over 70 municipalities in December.

“We are proud to announce the second round of grants to help cities, towns, and school districts from across the Commonwealth work together on improving their regionalization and efficiency efforts to better serve their residents,” said Gov. Charlie Baker

“As former local officials, Governor Baker and I understand the importance of maintaining strong relationships with our 351 cities and towns and we believe these grants will increase efficiencies and maximize taxpayer dollars to make every corner of the Commonwealth a better place to live, work and raise a family,” said Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito.

The Wareham Town and School Human Resources Functions will receive $72,499 and the Carver Town and School Facilities Department is in line for $41,500.
