Habitat Cape Cod Announces $70,000 Grant from Willett Foundation Fund of the Cape Cod Foundation

Funds will support a planned ten home neighborhood in Falmouth

Yarmouth Port, December 7, 2018 – Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod is pleased to announce it has received a $70,000 grant from the Willett Foundation Fund of the Cape Cod Foundation. These funds will support a planned ten home neighborhood in Falmouth.

“We are deeply appreciative for this generous gift and for the past support received from the Willett Foundation Fund.” said Wendy Cullinan, Director of Habitat Resource Development. “To recognize the generosity and Herb Willett’s dedication to improving the lives of the residents of Falmouth, we have named the new road in Falmouth, where we will build 10 affordable homes, Willett Way.”

Additional funding has been generously provided through a Falmouth Community Preservation Grant to support land acquisition. The Willett Way community housing project will be built in two phases and will consist of a mix of two and three-bedroom homes.

With these ten new Habitat homes on the horizon as well as additional homes to be built in Brewster, Wellfleet, Mashpee, Harwich and Chatham, Habitat Cape Cod is looking for Home Sponsors and volunteers. For more information on becoming a Home Sponsor contact Wendy at wendy@habitatcapecod.org or call (508) 362-3559 ext.11.
