From the Shape the Cape study, we learned that housing presents a significant issue for Young Professionals on Cape Cod.

Be part of the housing solution by completing this survey and help inform community stakeholders where to focus efforts in the short and long term.

Take Survey

The data is in.

In September 2013, CCYP launched an ambitious plan for collecting data and ideas directly from the affected population. Over 5,200 people participated in the data collection phase, which included an electronic survey, phone interviews, and focus groups.

CCYP is excited to now share the full report of the Shape the Cape survey data with our community as collected and analyzed by Dukakis the Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University.

What's the problem?

From 2000 to 2010, there was a 26% decline in Barnstable County residents age 25-44. ¹

If current trends continue, Cape Cod communities could experience a vacuum of wealth in culture, spirit and revenue. CCYP, on behalf of its membership and the communities it serves is working to put into action a community-engaged plan to retain and recruit a diverse workforce for our region with the goal to build healthy and vibrant communities and to increase civic engagement for the betterment of the future of Cape Cod.
