Grants of up to $10,000 to New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and municipalities to benefit communities in eligible regions. Funding is intended to support specific projects and related expenses that address the needs of residents, including start-up or new programs. Funded projects must serve the NHCF's eight regions of Capital, Lakes, Manchester, Monadnock, Nashua, North Country, Piscataqua, and Upper Valley.
Express Grants are project grants, so they are designed to support a particular project your organization would like to undertake. An Express Grant can only be used for a defined project. Express Grant budget items may include staff or other overhead expenses, but Express Grant funds will be tied to the particular project and its activities as described in the application narrative and budget.
