Conversation Starters 

Funds for Housing

Barnstable County has $1.5 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds to spend on housing. The county’s HOME Consortium staff wants feedback on ideas, and they want to share their plans so far, according to an announcement. They will also answer questions at a public forum on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 5:30 p.m. at the Snow Library in Orleans. (They are doing the same presentation on Thursday, Sept. 29, 5:30 p.m. at the Provincetown Public Library.)

The money can be used for preservation and production of affordable rental housing; tenant-based rental assistance; housing-related support services; and acquisition and development of noncongregate shelters (like hotel rooms and nursing homes.)

A New Refilling Station

What do you get when a nonprofit, a chamber of commerce, and a real estate company get together?

In Eastham, it is a water refill station. One was newly installed thanks to CARE (Creating A Responsible Environment) for the Cape & Islands, the town of Eastham, the Eastham Chamber of Commerce, and Foran Realty.

This new station is one of six water refill stations recently installed in Eastham, according to an announcement from the 10-year-old nonprofit CARE, which has funded a series of refill stations throughout Cape Cod as part of its mission to prevent marine debris by encouraging reuse and eliminating single-use plastic. —K.C.
