InvestNH Municipal Planning & Zoning Grants Application Webinar- 8/16/22

August 16, 2022 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Venue : Webinar

As part of Governor Sununu’s $100 million InvestNH initiative, $5 million has been allocated to provide grants to municipalities to analyze and update their land use regulations to help increase housing development opportunities.  The NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs has contracted with New Hampshire Housing to administer this program.

Two types of grants are available: Community Housing Navigator Grants and Housing Opportunity Planning (HOP) Grants. A municipality may be awarded both types of grants.

Cities and towns will use these grants to study zoning or other regulatory causes of a lack of affordable housing, identify potential changes to local land use regulations, and/or establish or update those regulations in response to those findings. Community engagement will be an important part of municipal work under these grants.

New Hampshire Housing will host a free webinar to discuss the grants and the application process on Tuesday, August 16th from 12 pm until 1 pm. This webinar will be recorded.
