Provincetown Self-Sufficiency Housing Voucher Program
Provincetown Self Sufficiency Local Housing Voucher Pilot Program is funded with grant assistance from the Community Preservation Fund as approved by town meeting. The Provincetown Self Sufficiency Program aims to allow a family to have affordable, year-round housing while participating in a program which will educate and/or enable them to become self-sufficient within a three (3) year period. Participants are required to certify household income and adequate progress toward sustainability on an annual basis. Participants will also be required to meet at least quarterly with case managers and monthly meetings if required to do so. 

Help Prevent Homelessness Food Gift Card Program
The Homeless Prevention Council offers food gift cards at various locations including their office at 14 Old Tote Road in Orleans and at various locations on the Lower Cape. Contact Community Housing Specialist Michelle Jarusiewicz at for additional information.  Gift cards are purchased at face value; the owner receives full value and the Homeless Prevention Council receives 5% of the card value from the participating market. So, a $100 gift card will provide a $5 donation. A win-win offer providing financial assistance to fight homelessness. Last year, the Homeless Prevention Council experienced a 32% increase in their case load and expect that to be even greater this year. At the same time, with state and federal cutbacks, there are fewer resources available.
