Grants to New Hampshire cities, towns, and counties to ensure the availability of affordable housing and public facilities. Funding is intended to support the development of viable communities, with an emphasis on low- and moderate-income families. This component accepts applications for projects in the areas of affordable housing, housing rehabilitation, and public facilities.

Affordable housing and housing rehabilitation grants provide a municipality with the funds to purchase, rehabilitate, expand, and improve the condition and supply of housing for low and moderate income homeowners and tenants. CDBG funds are often sub- granted to nonprofit affordable housing developers for these purposes.

Public Facilities grants include water and sewer system improvements, transitional and homeless shelters, sidewalks, handicapped access, and neighborhood or community centers that provide public services to low and moderate income people.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The maximum amount awarded to a municipality for housing and public facilities is $500,000 a year (this total is not counted against CDBG awards in other catagories).

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grant recipients include any city, town, or county in New Hampshire that is not already a HUD entitlement community (these are Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth, Dover, and Rochester – which already receive an annual CDBG allocation from HUD).

The awarded municipalities often subgrant the CDBG award to nonprofit or action group that will do the housing or public facilities work. Economic development awards are subgranted to nonprofit entities that loan cash to businesses which pledge to create jobs.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications for housing and public facilities applications are accepted on the last Monday of January and July of each year.

2019 Dates:
- First Round Applications due Monday, January 28, 2019
