Housing, clean energy, recreation projects and more get $11 million

Federal awards worth $11 million will help two dozen New Hampshire towns, organizations, and community groups expand housing, invest in green energy, and increase recreation opportunities. The Northern Border Regional Commission, a federal-state partnership for economic and community development in New Hampshire, northern Maine, Vermont, and New York, distributed  $43.6 million in awards across those states. It funded just over half the 46 applications it received from New Hampshire.

The Monadnock Affordable Housing Corporation received $500,000 to redevelop a vacant school in Keene into 30 apartments for low- and moderate-income individuals. Another $500,000 award will allow the Mount Washington Valley Economic Council and the Avesta Housing Development to pay for road infrastructure needed for 160 units of new affordable housing.
