NH Municipal Technical Assistance Grant (MTAG) Program

Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis.

Peterborough residents gathered in the ConVal High School cafeteria on Thursday, Oct. 7, 2016, to exchange ideas about the future of zoning and development in Peterborough. (Brandon Latham / Monadnock Ledger-Transcript)

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.
