Grants of up to $12,000 to New Hampshire cities, towns, and counties for the development and evaluation of projects to benefit low-and-moderate-income communities. Examples of eligible activities include cost estimates, market analysis, income surveys, and preliminary architectural and engineering design.

Planning Grants are awarded to determine whether a particular project is feasible for a potential CDBG implementation grant. All applications must document that at least 51% of the intended beneficiaries will be low- and moderate-income persons or households. Applications for water and sewer projects must document a known threat to health and safety.

The maximum amount awarded to a municipality for a planning grant is $12,000 a year (this total is not counted against CDBG awards in other catagories).

The CDBG project must be completed within 18 months of receiving the award.

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.

Applications are accepted on the last business day, Monday through Friday, of April and October each year.
