Plan New Hampshire, in partnership with New Hampshire Housing, is pleased to announce the creation of a new initiative, the NH Municipal Technical Assistance Program. Its purpose is to provide funding for municipalities who wish to increase housing options for households with diverse needs and income levels.
Grants of $2500 to $10,000 will be available in 2016 for developing new or revised regulations to improve choices in types and locations of places to live. The grants will be awarded from a competitive application process, which will include a requirement to raise twenty-five per cent of the award in a cash match.
Applications will be available January 4, 2016, and due April 4, 2016. Applications will be reviewed and selected for funding by a committee of professionals from around the state with experience and expertise in the regulatory standards that shape the built environment. The successful communities will be announced in May.
