Welcome to Halifax
The Town of Halifax is located in the center of Plymouth County in Massachusetts. It has a population of approximately 7,500 people and a mix of rural, agricultural (including cranberry bogs) and residential development. Founded in 1734, its history spans from colonial times to the present day. Please explore the Town's web site and if you need more information, please contact us.
Housing Rehabilitation/Child Care Subsidies
The Town of Halifax is seeking applicants for its joint program with the Town of Carver for Housing Rehabilitation and Childcare Subsidies. Anyone who previously applied for these programs has been contacted and the Town is now accepting new applications. Information about both programs is available on the Block Grant page. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and these programs will continue until the programs have allocated all available funds.
Water Restrictions/Water Ban
The Water Department has imposed water restrictions beginning on May 1, 2015. In addition, because of the work on the water tank, there will be an outside water ban beginning on September 1, 2015 while the water tank is being painted. Information about the restrictions and ban is available.
Halifax Cultural Council
The Halifax Board of Selectmen is seeking residents interested in serving on the Halifax Cultural Council. The Council provides grant funding for a wide-range of cultural programs and activities. However, in order to distribute this grant funding, the Council needs a minimum of five members. The Council usually meets twice a year: once in the late summer to review the grant procedures and once in the late fall to make grant decisions. Any resident interested in serving on the Council should contact the Halifax Board of Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316.
Town Hall Open Limited Hours on Fridays
Beginning on Friday, July 10, 2015, the Halifax Town Hall will be re-open on a limited basis on Fridays. Hours for each department will be posted on the Town's web site. These hours may change due to staffing and budget availability. Visitors are encouraged to call ahead to ensure that the office they need to do business with will be open. For more information about this change, please call the Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316.
