The Barnstable County HOME Consortium, is proud to collaborate with our state and local municipal partners in providing funding assistance to affordable housing developments in our Cape communities. Recently the HOME Consortium awarded a conditional commitment of $150,000 to he Residences at Yarmouth Gardens, Yarmouth.
The Residences at Yarmouth Gardens is the redevelopment of an existing old motel into a forty (40) unit rental housing project located on Route 28 in Yarmouth serving income-eligible households. The project will consist of one, two and three-bedroom residential units in two two-story buildings and will include a community room and playground.
The Barnstable County HOME Consortium [BCHC], is comprised 15 communities on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The 15 communities are Barnstable, Bourne, Brewster, Chatham, Dennis, Eastham, Falmouth, Harwich, Mashpee, Orleans, Provincetown, Sandwich, Truro, Wellfleet, and Yarmouth. The BCHC was formed to be a Participating Jurisdiction to receive and disburse HOME funds. In 2015, Barnstable County designated the Department of Human Services to act as the program’s lead agent, responsible to HUD for all administrative functions related to the operation of the BCHC. As established by County ordinance in 1992, the HOME Consortium Advisory Council consists of seventeen members: one representative from each town and two at-large members.
