What is Healthy Aging Cape Cod (HACC)?


Healthy Aging Cape Cod (HACC) is a collaborative effort among organizations serving older adults in Barnstable County (Cape Cod) to align existing services to better enable residents to age in place successfully.  Convened by the Barnstable County Department of Human Services (BCDHS), the HACC Steering Committee members include leaders from the following four sectors:

  • transportation,
  • housing
  • workforce development
  • health/human services

We seek grant funding to continue the regional planning work begun in 2017.

For more information, contact Mandi Speakman, Deputy Director at Barnstable County Department of Human Services at 508-470-4936 or mandi.speakman@capecod.gov.
