Cumberland Plans Program

The Cumberland County Board of Commissioners created the Cumberland Plans Program (CPP) which provides funding for county and local planning projects to achieve the goals, objectives and strategies outlined in the Comprehensive Plan.  The Cumberland County Planning Commission (CCPC) has been designated as the lead agency to implement the CPP.

The CPP enables eligible applicants to conduct planning studies, update comprehensive plans and develop ordinances that are consistent with the county comprehensive plan. 

Municipalities can apply for grant funding to prepare new or update existing planning documents such as comprehensive plans, zoning ordinances, subdivision and land development ordinances, and official maps.  In addition, special planning studies that implement the Cumberland County Comprehensive Plan are eligible for funding.  Please review Program Guidelines before completing an application.

Applications can be submitted at any time and will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.

New for 2021 is an entirely online submission process: Application                       

 **Note** paper submissions will not be accepted.
