Provincetown launches community-oriented Little Fix program

Applications being accepted through the end of the month

The Town of Provincetown has announced a unique community service--the Little Fix Program--and applications are due by Thursday, July 31. The program, coordinated by the town's Housing Office and funded by the Provincetown Community Preservation Act, is a volunteer project open to seniors, veterans and disabled residents.

Qualified residents are encouraged to apply to have work done at their home or rental in September. The small home projects and landscaping--little fixes--will be done by volunteers.

The September project is a pilot program, according to the Housing Office and similar projects are expected to be scheduled in the future.

According to information released by the town, applicants will be chosen based on income, repair needs and the ability to meet the request.

Residents interested in volunteering may do so on the town's website. Donations of labor teams, equipment, materials, refreshments and t-shirts will also be welcomed.
