Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program

Town of Yarmouth Launches Job Retention and Creation CDBG Grant Program

In response to the COVID-19 crisis the Town of Yarmouth has launched a job retention and creation grant program aimed at providing small businesses (10 or fewer employees) with short-term working capital in order to retain jobs held by low and moderate-income persons. This assistance will be in the form of a grant to reimburse businesses actual payroll expenditures.

The program budget is $60,000 and grants may range from $3,000 - $5,000 depending on the number of complete applications received by the Town prior to May 12, 2020 at 4:30pm. The Town may limit assistance to $1,500 per job. This program is funded through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) by the US HUD, which will be consulted to determine eligibility of each applicant business.

Program applications can be found below and can be submitted via email to Mary Waygan, Yarmouth CDBG Coordinator, at MWaygan@yarmouth.ma.us . Applications may also be mailed in to Yarmouth Town Hall at 1146 Route 28, South Yarmouth, MA 02664 (Attn: Mary Waygan).
