Eastham's Exterior Improvement Program

The Exterior Improvement Program (EIP) aims to address the need for capital investment and upgrades to commercial space in Eastham, while providing a needed boost to local businesses in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program offers a combination of funding awards and a streamlined project review process, with an emphasis on projects that improve the visual appearance of business properties, provide clear community and/or economic benefits, and increase voluntary compliance with local and state regulations.

Program Goals include: 

  • Help Eastham businesses with pandemic recovery
  • Address deferred maintenance and capital investment needs in commercial spaces
  • Test options for streamlining the Town’s commercial regulatory process
  • Gain compliance with commercial zoning and regulatory requirements 
  • Activate underutilized exterior spaces
