Wareham awarded $66,900 grant to launch 'e-permitting' system

May 21, 2018

Wareham is one of 45 Massachusetts' communities awarded a total of $2 million in technology grants.

Wareham received $66,900 to launch an “e-permitting” system, which will allow the town to track the 12,000 permits and licenses it issues annually, make up-to-the-minute status updates, and allow for coordinated review and sign-off by multiple departments, reducing wait times for residents and businesses. The money will come from the state’s Community Compact Information Technology Grant Program.

“As the use of technology continues to expand in our everyday lives, these grants provide an opportunity to deliver better service at the municipal level to our residents,” said Baker.

The grants fund technology improvements to help drive innovation and transformation and enhance service locally.
