NH Municipal Technical Assistance Grant (MTAG) Program
Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis.
Does your community need more choices in places to live – but zoning is preventing them? Perhaps you want a mixed -use downtown or neighborhood, or multi-family homes – but your current zoning prevents it. Or people may be looking for denser neighborhoods of smaller homes, but current zoning does not allow it
The MTAG Program may be assistance you need.
Funded by New Hampshire Housing and administered by Plan NH, the MTAG Program is for New Hampshire communities who want to expand options for places to live (eg, by location, and/or design and/or price-point) and need to change their zoning regulations in order to do so. Grants range from $5000 to $20,000. A 25% cash match is required.
Grant funds are for hiring consultants to review current regulations and re-writing what’s there and/or creating new ones to address the wants and needs of the community’s members regarding housing choices.
A key part of the program is community outreach and engagement in the process.
