The Cape Cod Commission Act outlines the purposes, duties, and powers of the agency as well as its structure. The Commission is an agency within Barnstable County regional government, but with its own separate and unique funding source, the Cape Cod Environmental Protection Fund.

Each one of the 15 Cape towns appoints a representative to serve on the Cape Cod Commission. The board of Barnstable County Commissioners also appoint a minority representative, a Native American representative, and a representative from their own board. The Governor's Office appoints the remaining Cape Cod Commission member.

The 19 Cape Cod Commission board members are all citizen volunteers who serve in a quasi-judicial capacity. They are supported by a staff of about 40 professionals, all managed by the agency's executive director.
