Eastham Receives Downtown Revitalization Grant

EASTHAM – The town of Eastham has received a $15,000 grant through the Massachusetts Downtown Initiative technical assistance program.

The program enables towns to work with expert consultants to pursue downtown revitalization projects.

The grant funding will be used by Eastham to develop a strategy to strengthen walking and vehicle connections in the town center and create a sense of place through branding.

“Through the Massachusetts Downtown Initiative, our administration is supporting downtown vitality to create jobs and strengthen our communities,” said Gov. Charlie Baker. “Walkable, dynamic downtowns that house local businesses, restaurants, and amenities help make cities and towns across the Commonwealth vibrant, welcoming places and retain and attract a talented workforce strengthening our economy.

Eastham was one of 19 communities in the state to receive $285,000 in funding through the program.

Since 2015, the Baker-Polito Administration has awarded $725,000 to more than 25 municipalities across the Commonwealth.
