New Hampshire Projects Receive Northern Border Regional Commission Grants

CONCORD, NH – Communities and organizations in six rural counties will share $11 million in federal funds awarded through grants from the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC).

Created by the US Congress in 2008, the NBRC is a federal-state partnership working to alleviate economic challenges in northern counties across New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. In New Hampshire, projects are eligible for the Catalyst program in all, or portions of, Belknap; Carroll; Cheshire; Coos; Grafton, and Sullivan Counties.

This year, the NBRC distributed $43.6 million across the four-state region.

“Investing in New Hampshire’s rural communities is critical to continued success of the region for years to come,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “I look forward to working directly with stakeholders across the region to make sure these dollars are put to use as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
